Pediment sculpture Victoire et Abondance, Aile Lemercier
Although he was not able to participate in the Prix de Rome competition Philippe Laurent Roland saved enough money to travel to Italy and spend five years studying there, before returning to Paris where he received many commissions for tourist attractions like the Chateau de Fontainebleau and the former Palais du Louvre, including this sculpture of Victoire et Abonance.

However, this photograph shows the entire middle section of the Aile Lemercier with the top pediment sculpture of Victory and Abundance that was put in place in 1806, and you would need to be standing the courtyard of the Louvre Museum called the Cour Carree in order to see this ornate facade.
