The ninth arrondissement today and painted by Gustave Caillebotte who lived in a flat above and on the right side of le grand boulevard.
Colette and one of her petits chats in the Palais-Royal. She lived directly above this part of the colonade and loved feeding the strays. She's leaning against the window of le Grand Véfour, the resto she ate at every day. You can eat there today, too, even at the corner burgundy velvet banquette where a small brass plaque announces Colette's favorite seat.
