L'Abondance sculpture by Eugene Guillaume
This first HD photo shows a close up of the pediment located at the top of the Turgot Pavilion, which faces south into the courtyard called the Cour Napoleon, and located above the dormer window, it shows the fine details that went into the sculpture, which is an allegory depicting Abundance.

Now this photograph provides a bit more of a perspective as to the location of this sculpture called L'Abondance, which is hard to see just using your eyes, and put in place in 1857, this was produced by Jean Baptiste Claude Eugene Guillaume, who was born in 1822 and is normally just referred to as Eugene Guillaume.

And having entered the Ecole des Beaux Arts, he went on to win the Prix de Rome and became a prolific French sculptor, yet he was also an avid writer and art critic on the subject of sculpture and architecture, specifically for the Classical period and the Italian Renaissance.

So this not only led to numerous public commissions for art works including several for the Musee du Louvre, but he produced works for many other tourist attractions in Paris like the Palais Garnier Opera and other cities throughout France, yet was also elected the director of the Ecole des Beaux Arts in 1864.

But later in his career Eugene Guillaume became a member of the Academie Francaise and was sent to Rome in 1891 to be the director of the Academie de France, which is where he passed away in 1905, but numerous statues and sculptures he created can be found in different museums throughout France including the Musee d'Orsay.
