Again we were within the courtyard of the Musee du Louvre called the Cour Napoleon, when we took these photos showing an allegorical statue on the Aile Turgot called Le Feu, which was sculpted by Henri Frederic Iselin.

Le Feu statue Aile Turgot Musee du Louvre
This first HD photo shows the statue called Le Feu, which in English translates to The Fire, and based upon a mythical theme, you can see the young child has wings, yet wrapping around him is a dragon with mouth open, as though breathing fire.

So when you are looking at the facade of the Aile Turgot of the former Palais du Louvre, which is the famous tourist attraction in the 1st Arrondissement of Paris, you can see this stone statue on the third level by the roof line of this wing, and it is positioned fifth from the right hand side.
Le Feu statue by Henri Frederic Iselin
Now this was produced by Henri Frederic Iselin who was born in 1825 to a modest family, but his talent as an artist and sculptor was recognised and he managed to become a pupil of the famous French sculptor Francois Rude, first presenting works at the 1849 Paris Salon.

His good reputation was even heard of by Napoleon III, and in 1862 he became the official sculptor for the Emperor producing numerous busts and statues, but after the fall of the empire he still received commissions from wealthy families. Yet Henri Frederic Iselin left Paris in 1896 and moved to the Franche Comte region of France for his retirement, which is where he passed away from cancer in 1905.
