Claude Lorrain statue on Aile Henri II
Now this stone statue can be found on the Aile Henri II wing on the first level balustrade, and as you are looking at the facade from the Cour Napoleon, it is positioned as the very first statue to the left hand side right next to the Pavillon Sully.
Claude Lorrain statue by artist Auguste-Hyacinthe de Bay
So this statue of Lorrain you can see in this photograph was produced by Auguste-Hyacinthe de Bay, which is sometimes spelt Debay, and he was born in Nantes in April 1804 and learnt to be a sculptor at a young age from his father who was also a French sculptor.

And in this last close up HD photo you can see the plaque on the base of the stone statue that depicts Claude Lorrain, however, he was born around the start of the 1600s with the name Claude Gellee, yet he is also sometimes referred to as Le Lorrain.

He was born in the Vosges area of France and became a French painter, having been taught initially by his elder brother, but rather than staying in France he travelled to Italy, which is where he spent the rest of his life.

Yet his landscape paintings received international recognition and he was commissioned by people such as the French Ambassador in Rome, the King of Spain, the Pope and many others, and is recognised today for his achievements and skill he put into producing brilliant landscapes, utilising the sun as a source of light for his paintings.
