Art in the district
The Left Bank has always attracted writers, artists and painters. Lined with mythical places, the teeming district of the Roaring Twenties remains an epicentre of creation and the emblematic cafés such as the Dôme, the Rotonde, the Select or even La Coupole are sure to delight you.
In fact, as a nod to history, number 3 rue de Vercingétorix was once home to the Douanier Rousseau and the area was home to the artist Josephine Baker on her second trip to Paris before settling there permanently. The artists Alexandre & Florentine Lamarche-Ovize pay tribute to her with their work in the hotel's entrance.
Only a few minutes walk from the Drawing House, you can visit many museums and art institutions. If you like contemporary art we recommend you visit the Fondation Cartier pour l'art contemporain, a cultural centre that organises exhibitions that allow you to discover today's fashionable artists. If you prefer sculpture, you can also see the Musée Bourdelle, the house and studio of a 19th century sculptor with a garden where his works are displayed, or the Institut Giacometti, a reference point for the artist's work that organises numerous exhibitions.
Other cultural places to visit within a 15-minute walk are the Catacombs of Paris, the Musée de la Poste and the Musée de la Libération de Paris.
