Neighbourhood of art and culture
The Hôtel d'Aubusson is located in the heart of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, in the 6th arrondissement. The neighbourhood's artistic and cultural vocation has lasted since the 17th - 18th centuries. Philosophers, the writers of the "Encyclopédie", revolutionaries, students, and many more met there and exchanged ideas, gradually turning Saint-Germain-des-Prés into a privileged meeting place for intellectuals. After the Second World War, this centre of cultural life in Paris saw artists, jazz musicians, singers, scholars, journalists, and more, take over the fashionable cafés and clubs.
This exciting atmosphere can still be seen in the neighbourhood and has forged the very special identity of the Left Bank of Paris: literary cafés, piano bars such as the Café Laurent, art galleries, publishers, antique dealers, young fashion creators have already chosen to establish themselves there. A bohemian atmosphere reigns over the narrow streets around the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés, as well as the Sorbonne in the nearby Latin Quarter.
Things to see and do in the neighbourhood:
- The Delacroix Museum: it occupies the apartment and studio where the painter lived from 1857 to 1863 and organises exhibitions around the artist's work.
- The Maillol Museum: discover the sculptor's work. Thematic exhibitions are also organised here.
- The Rodin Museum: sculptures, sketches and other masterpieces offer you the chance to discover the artist. An exceptional collection which, in particular, includes The Gates of Hell and The Thinker.

After the Carl Larsson exhibition in 2014, the Petit Palais is devoting a major retrospective to the work of Anders Zorn (1860-1920), the other central figure of Swedish painting at the turn of the 19th-century. During his lifetime, Zorn achieved great renown as a portrait painter and etcher.
Along with Sargent, Sorolla, Boldini, and Besnard, he was one of the most visible disciples of an international style that was both modern and masterful, where energetic brushwork combined with bold composition and lighting to create elegant portraits that were also great works of art. This first retrospective in Paris should mark the return to grace of a master who remains very popular in Scandinavia, and was celebrated with success in San Francisco and New York in 2013-2014.
