Le Fleuve De La Vie On Aile Lemercier

Now this statue was made of marble and was entitled Le Fleuve de la vie, which in English translates to The River of Life, and you will find this on the Aile Lemercier of the former Palais du Louvre.

It was sculpted back in 1855 then it was put in place on the first level of the Lemercier wing on the very right hand side, which can be viewed from the inner courtyard called the Cour Carree, and this is the western wing of this particular section of the Musee du Louvre.

Le Fleuve De La Vie By Pierre Hebert

So Le Fleuve de la vie was produced by Pierre Eugene Emile Hebert who was born in Paris in 1823 and followed in his fathers footsteps to become a French sculptor, initially studying under him, before then studying with Jean Jacques Fauchere.

But because his father had the same name of Pierre Hebert, to distinguish the two, he always used his full name of Pierre Eugene Emile Hebert during his career and while presenting works at the Paris Salons.

Pierre Eugene Emile Hebert died in Paris in 1893, and even though other works of his can be found in Paris at tourist attractions such as the Musee d'Orsay and on a theatre, not forgetting the River of Life marble statue, you will find that many of his works are now located in the United States of America, Canada and the United Kingdom.
