L'Automne statue on Rotonde d'Apollon at Musee du Louvre
This first HD photo shows the statue called l'Automne, which in English translates to Autumn, and this was designed as an allegory depicting this specific time of year when many fruits etc are harvested or the leaves start to fall, hence why in America it is known as Fall.

And this particular allegorical statue can be found on the Rotonde d'Apollon and when you are looking at the facade of this wing on the former Palais du Louvre from the courtyard, you will find the Autumn statue positioned second from the left hand side on the upper level.
L'Automne statue by French sculptor Emile Chatrousse
Now this statue of l'Automne was produced by Emile Chatrousse who was born in Paris in the March of 1829, but from a poor background he was forced to work from the age of eleven, yet he had a passion for sculpture and eventually managed to enter the workshop of Francois Rude.

And it was after presenting a plaster group at a Paris Salon depicting Queen Hortense and her son Louis Napoleon, a bronze cast was commissioned by the then Napoleon III, which led to many different public commissions for embellishments on famous tourist attractions in Paris including this one and two others for The Louvre.

Yet his life was not always easy even after this, as he had to raise his three children when his wife passed away in 1864, but still continuing to work as a French sculptor, Emile Chatrousse was awarded the Legion of Honour in 1878.

Although he was also a writer and an art critic, plus Emile Chatrousse was a council member for one of the Arrondissements in the capital city and even in 1891 produced an impressive bronze depicting Joan of Arc for the Saint-Marcel Boulevard, before passing away in Paris in the November of 1896.
