This first HD photo shows a statue called Les Vendanges, which in English generally translates to The Grape Harvest, and as you can see, there are two young children with one depicted picking the grapes for the harvest in this allegorical statue that was produced in stone in the 1860s.
So here you can see a close up photograph showing the detailing that went into producing this statue of Les Vendanges, which was by Alfred Jean Baptiste Paul Halou, known as Halou the elder or Jean Baptiste Halou, who was born in Blois in 1829.
And presenting works at the Salons for French artists from 1853 through to 1886, his focus was mainly portrait style statues and busts of famous people, with numerous works now held within the Museum of Fine Arts at the Chateau de Blois, which is also the town where Jean Baptiste Halou passed away.
Now you will find that this statue of the Grape Harvest is located on the balustrade by the roof line of the northern facade of Pavillon des Etats, and when you are looking at this facade of the Louvre Museum from the courtyard called the Cour du Carrousel, you will see that this has been positioned second from the right hand side, or ninth from the left.
