Le Genie de la peche statue at Aile Colbert
La Peche is an allegorical statue that is located on the very top pediment of the former Palais du Louvre on the wing called the Aile Colbert, yet this sculpture also has a full name of Le Genie de la peche, which translates in English to The Genie of Fishing, and this was put in place in 1857 during the transformation of the Louvre facades with additional decorations.
Le Genie de la peche statue by Jean Ferrat
Now La Peche was sculpted by Jean Joseph Hippolyte Romain Ferrat, who is sometimes known as just Hippolyte Ferrat, and born in the Provence Alpes Cote d'Azur region of France in August 1822, he was able to study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris to become a French sculptor.

You will find that much of his work and creations were for buildings and monuments within the area that he came from such as a monumental fountain, yet he also received commissions for certain works in Paris, including the statue you can see in this HD photo, but he retired back to his home town of Aix-en-Provence, which is where he passed away in the October of 1882.
