Now this first HD photo shows a relief style sculpture called Diane entre deux chiens, although this is sometimes referred to as Diane avec Chiens, and there are actually two of these identical embellishments located on the Pavillon Richelieu of the former Palais du Louvre.
It was Pierre Louis Rouillard who was entrusted with producing these two statue style sculptures during the restoration of The Louvre between the years 1850 and 1857, and translated into English the name means Diana between two dogs or Diana with Dogs.
This composition was designed to represent Diana, Goddess of the hunt, who was a Goddess in Roman mythology that has always been depicted with animals being deer or hunting dogs, and as we mentioned this was sculpted by Pierre Louis Rouillard, who was born in Paris in 1820.
Having studied at the Ecole des Beaux Arts to become a French sculptor, this artist had a very important role during the restoration of the Palais du Louvre, as he was in charge of no less than ten different sculptors and executed many embellishments for different facades, along with others for internal courtyards within the Louvre Museum.
And Pierre Louis Rouillard was classed as an Animalier, or sculptor of animals, who had a prolific and lucrative career, even working for the sultan in Istanbul, so today, many of his works can be seen in numerous places throughout France and many places in the world.
Yet this photograph shows the location of the Diana between two dogs relief sculpture positioned above a window on the first level of the Richelieu Pavilion, and when you are looking at this facade from the courtyard called the Cour Napoleon, you will see this is the left hand side sculpture on this wing.
