This first HD photo shows the location of La Science et l’Industrie, which is an allegorical sculpture depicting Science and Industry, and it is surrounding the left hand side porthole style window on the Pavillon Mollien, that you can see from the courtyard of the former Palais du Louvre called the Cour du Carrousel.
La Science et l’Industrie by Jean Esprit Marcellin
So this next photograph shows a close up of this allegory, which was sculpted by Jean Esprit Marcellin who was born in Gap in 1821 and entered the Ecole des Beaux Arts in Paris in 1844 first showing works at the 1845 Salon for French artists.

Jean Esprit Marcellin became well recognised for his statues and sculptures, and received no less than eight different orders for The Louvre, and was in high demand for the quality of his standing figures, five of which are for this famous museum.

Yet he also produced statues for other tourist attractions such as churches, the Chateau de Fontainebleu and the Paris City Hall, to name a few, plus many of his works can now be found within museums and Jean Esprit Marcellin continued to work right up until he passed away in 1884.
