Balthus #9




Cour de Rohan, found by Albert Capellani in 1913 for his historical drama "Le Chevalier de Maison Rouge". Stills from the movie from 1914.

The cour de Rohan, also known as the cour de Rouen is a set of courtyards with parts dating back to the thirteenth century, though most is from the sixteenth century onwards. From 1933 on Balthus had a studio on number 6.

Slills from the movie "Gigi", directed by Vincente Minnelli, 1958.

Just up those stairs was the painter Balthus's studio. When Leslie Caron runs up them, as Gigi, she appears to be going to visit him. When Louis Jourdan comes down into the courtyard after visiting Gigi, in the next shot he is in the rue de Furstemberg, which is where Balthus had a studio before coming to the cour de Rohan. These are strange coincidences.

The current owner, a Frenchman who now lives in New York, bought the property around 1999.
