Again we were admiring the Aile Turgot from the Cour Napoleon courtyard of the Musee du Louvre, and took these high definition photos showing a statue called L'Etude, which was sculpted by Antoine Adam-Salomon.

L'Etude statue Aile Turgot
This first HD photo shows the allegorical statue called Etude, which in English translates to Study, and this can be found on the top level of the Aile Turgot wing of the former Palais du Louvre, and as you are looking at the facade from the courtyard, this is positioned by a chimney as the third statue from the left hand side.

Yet this next close up image shows the detail that went into this sculpture, although it looks like the young boy is almost falling asleep, or maybe it should be perceived as deep in thought, considering it represents study, but this was sculpted by Antoine Adam-Salomon and put in place in 1857.

Now Antoine Samuel Adam-Salomon was born in 1818 and after initially studying to become a modeller, he received a scholarship to study sculpture in Paris, which is how he started off his main career and ended up producing numerous portraits and busts of celebrities and other famous people, plus he received public commissions such as this one for the Louvre palace.

But later in his life he studied photography, which is what he became most well known for, and Adam-Salomon, often using a pseudonym of Adama, has been recognised as one of the pioneers of introducing photography as an art form, and becoming the leading portrait photographer of his time throughout the world.
