This first HD photo shows a statue called Euripyle, which is an ancient Greek name often spelt Eurypyle, and this particular name come in many times within Greek mythology and ancient texts, yet when referred to a male figure, the name is often spelt Eurypylus.
Now this statue was produced in marble by Henri Frederic Iselin, who was born in 1826 and studied sculpture in the studio of Francois Rude, first exhibiting at the 1849 Salon for French artists and he received several medals, also being award the Legion of Honour in 1863 and produced two statues for the Louvre Museum.
However, in this image you can see a closer view of the model figure that Euripyle, or Eurypylus, is holding, and although Henri Fredieric Iselin produced several portrait style statues, he was most well recognised for his busts, including many of Napoleon III, prior to retiring in 1892, but lots of his works can now be found at tourist attractions such as the Chateau de Versailles and the Chateau de Compiegne.
Yet here you can see the location of this marble statue positioned within in a niche on the Aile Lescot of the former Palais du Louvre, and when you are looking at this facade from the courtyard called the Cour Carree, you will see that this is the second statue from the left hand side.
