The rue Drouot was created in the early eighteenth century, but it was extended in the second half of the nineteenth century, following the "Haussmannization" of Paris. The street housed many "magasins de nouveautés", as well as the famous Hôtel Drouot, which, to this day, is the most renowned auction gallery in the French capital city. More on Carrefour Drouot
Jean Béraud (January 12, 1849 – October 4, 1935) was a French painter, noted for his paintings of Parisian life during the Belle Époque. He was renowned in Paris society due to his numerous paintings depicting the life of Paris, and the nightlife of Paris society. He also painted religious subjects in a contemporary setting. Pictures of the Champs Elysees, cafeés, Montmartre and the banks of the Seine are precisely detailed illustrations of everyday Parisian era of the "Belle Époque". More Jean Béraud
