Gustave Courbet‘s workshop from 1848 up to the Paris Commune was based at No. 32. Among those who visited him here were Charles Baudelaire, who was born at No. 13 in a building that was knocked down when the Boulevard St Germain was driven through the Latin Quarter, and Emile Zola.

Painted between 1854 and 1855 in the former medical school in the Rue Hautefeuille,it’s full title is: ‘The Artist’s Studio, a real allegory summing up seven years of my artistic and moral life’. Rejected for the 1855 Paris World Fair, it now hangs in the Orsay Museum.
