La Peche Statue On Aile Turgot

This first HD photo shows the statue called La Peche, which in English translates to The Fisher, or just Fishing, and while you are standing within the Cour Napeon courtyard, you can view this statue on the top level of the Aile Turgot wing, positioned in front of a chimney.

Now La Peche was actually first sculpted in plaster in 1855, and can be seen today within the Musee d'Orsay under their catalogue of statues, and the final stone statue was put into position on the former Palais du Louvre in 1857, which is the fourth statue from the right hand side.

La Peche Statue By Aime Napoleon Perrey

So this next photograph shows a close up of the La Peche statue and the detailing that went into its production, which was by Aime Napoleon Perrey, who was born in 1813, and becoming a French sculptor he worked on the restoration of numerous churches including the Sainte Chapelle.

He also received several commissions for the famous tourist attraction of the Musee du Louvre including this one of the genie as an allegory related to Fishing, along with statues for the Hotel de Ville in Paris, etc, continuing to work up until he passed away in 1883 only days after his 70th birthday.
