Now this particular statue of The Spring on the Musee du Louvre was produced by the prolific French sculptor Jean Auguste Barre who was the son of an engraver born in Paris in 1811, and initially studied under his father before being admitted to the Ecole des Beaux Arts.

During the Empire, he was the official portrait sculptor of Napoleon III generating at least 20 different busts of famous people, plus many of this emperor himself that can now be found in museums and at the Chateau de Versailles.
