La Force statue on Rotonde d'Apollon at Musee du Louvre
This first HD photo shows the allegorical statue of La Force positioned on the top level of the Rotonde d'Apollon wing of the former Palais du Louvre, and when you are looking at the facade from the Cour Napoleon courtyards, this statue can be found in the corner at the very left hand side by the roof.
La Force statue by Charles Lebourg
Now La Force decorative statue that you can see in this close up was produced by Charles Lebourg who was born in Nantes in February 1829 and initially studied drawing and sculpture in his home town before moving to Paris in 1851 and studying under the famous French sculptor Francois Rude.

He started presenting works at the Paris Salons and was awarded many medals for his works, which led to him receiving public commissions for statues and sculptures such as this one and another two for the Louvre Museum plus one for the Hotel de Ville in Paris.

Yet Charles Lebourg is probably most famous for working with Richard Wallace to design and sculpt the caryatid Wallace fountains that can be found in many cities throughout France, however, even with these successes, unfortunately he died in poverty in Paris in 1906, but many of his works can now be found within the Museum of Fine Arts in his home town of Nantes.
