La Peche statue by Auguste Jean Baptiste Lechesne
This first close up HD photo shows the statue called La Peche, which in English translates to Fishing, or The Fisher and this is located right by the roof of the Rotonde de Beauvais wing of the former Palais du Louvre and can viewed from the Cour Napoleon courtyard, third from the left hand side.

And although you can view the final version of this stone statue on the facade of The Louvre, originally, the artist produced a plaster version, which is now held at another famous tourist attraction in Paris called the Musee d'Orsay, and these were both executed between the years 1855 and 1857.

So as we mentioned earlier, this statue of La Peche was produced by Auguste Jean Baptiste Lechesne who was born in Caen within the Basse Normandie region of France in 1815, but entered the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris to become a French sculptor.

Becoming recognised after producing a frieze for a specific mansion house, that led to numerous more commissions for Parisian mansions along with public commissions for historical buildings including The Louvre, and he received several awards for his works including the Legion of Honour, yet Auguste Jean Baptiste Lechesne retired back to his home town, which is where he passed away in 1888.
