Le Commerce Statue By Sebastien Delarue

Le Commerce is an allegorical statue depicting Commerce or Trade, and this is one of the many child statues that were sculpted for the former Palais du Louvre, which was a royal palace prior to being turned into a museum.

So when you are looking at the Aile Turgot wing from the courtyard called the Cour Napoleon, you will see that this is the very first statue on the left hand side at the top of the facade by the roof line, and was put in place in 1857.

Now Le Commerce was sculpted by Sebastien Delarue who was born in 1822 and became a French sculptor, yet had a very short career, as unfortunately he passed away in 1868, and therefore is very little known.

But initially Sebastien Delarue produced the statue of Trade in plaster prior to the one you can see in this HD photo, which is made of stone, and the plaster model is now held at the Musee d'Orsay, which is another very popular museum and tourist attraction in Paris.
