Now this Aphrodite statue was produced in marble by Georges Clere who was born in Nancy in 1819 and initially studied medicine, before turning to sculpture and he entered the studio of Francois Rude in Paris to train further after having studied at the Fine Arts School in Dijon.

Georges Clere received numerous commissions from the French state and the City of Paris including several for The Louvre between the 1850s and 1860s that can be found on different facades of the former Palais du Louvre.
