L'Ordre statue on Pavillon Denon
This first HD photo shows L'Ordre statue which was designed as an allegory to depict order, and when you are looking at the facade of the Denon Pavilion from the Cour Napoleon, you will see this to the right hand side on the second level above the columns on the former Palais du Louvre.
L'Ordre statue by Antoine Louis Barye
Now this particular statue of Order was produced by Antoine Louis Barye who was born in 1795 in Paris, which is where he resided all his life, and becoming a French sculptor he also produced the other allegory on the opposite side of the same wing.

Antoine Louis Barye was a prolific artist and is most famous for his animal sculptures and small bronzes, although he produced numerous monumental statues as well, and even though he received many different commissions from the French government, Antoine Barye was not good with money, at one point having to declare bankruptcy.

However, he had a prolific career with many works of small ornamental bronzes being reproduced several times over, and these can be found within museums and in public places all over the world including America and different countries in Europe, but from 1854 up until he passed away in 1875, Antoine Louis Barye was also professor of drawing for the Natural History Museum in Paris.
