La cour de la Victoire, L'hôtel Carnavalet

The courtyard of Victory owes its name to the lead statue created in 1807 by Simon Boizot (1743-1809) for the Châtelet fountain.  The statue represents a winged Victory with upraised arms holding laurel wreaths made of bronze.  The statue here is a copy of the original.

  1. I have a wonderful print of this beautiful piece of art. As a designer-maker (furniture on offs) and a masters degree in Photography, i find this beautiful work of art both beautiful and amazing drawing my gaze. Thank you for another look. Patrick Williams
