West Facade Pavillon Turgot L'Invention Et La Reflexion Sculpture

This first HD photo shows the lower level of the Pavillon Turgot, which is a pavilion of the former Palais du Louvre located by the Cour Napoleon and the Cour du Carrousel, and the side you can see here is the western facade that faces towards the Tuileries Gardens.

Now you can see that there are two port hold style windows that have sculptures surrounding them, and the one to the right hand side of the doorway is called L'Invention et la Reflexion.

L'Invention Et La Reflexion Sculpture By Georges Diebolt

L'Invention et la Reflexion translates in English to The Invention and Reflection, and in this close up photograph you can see the detailing that went into this bas relief, which was sculpted by Georges Diebolt, who was born in Dijon in 1816, yet went to Paris to study at the Ecole des Beaux Arts in order to become a French sculptor.

Georges Diebolt received numerous monumental public commissions especially during the Second Empire, having previously won the Prix de Rome, and these included statues for the Pont d'Alma and Pont des Invalides, along with embellishments for other tourist attractions including The Louvre.

However, unfortunately his career was short lived, as he died at the young age of only 45, but the Zouave statue on the Pont d'Alma is still used today as a flood level indicator for the River Seine, whereas the other one he produced for this bridge in Paris was removed and re-erected at Lake Kir close to Dijon where he originally came from.
