History and visit the Rue Paul-Baudry in Paris
St. Paul-Baudry is a way in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. It begins in the rue de Ponthieu, specifically Nos. 54 and 56 rue de Ponthieu, and ends at the rue d’Artois, more precisely in the No. 9 and 11 of the rue d’Artois. It is situated in the Faubourg du Roule. Created in 1829, it was once called Rue Fortin.
It was by virtue of a Royal Decree of 4 November 1829 that Jean-Joseph Fortin, a lawyer, was allowed to open a wide street 12 meters to connect rue de Ponthieu with what is now rue d’Artois. Construction officially began in 1837. The street was subsequently renamed in 1865 in honor of the renowned painter Paul Baudry (1828-1886).
Many historical figures have been attached to Rue St. Paul Baudry. For instance, No. 3 houses the Hall Wendel, constructed over an area of 4700 m² in 1856. It was Mrs. Robert Wendel (1850-1917) and her son, the Duke de Maille, husband of Carmen de Wendel, who resided there until 1908. The building has since been restored in 2006 to accommodate the Paris office of the law firm Baker & McKenzie.
No. 6 was the residence of the Hotel de la Vicomtesse de Courval. She accumulated valuable art collections and fitted the hotel with exquisite 18th-century oak paneling which, as of 1925, was relocated to the Hotel Bischoffsheim at 11 Place des États-Unis. In 1989, the building underwent a redesign by architect Pierre-Louis Faloci for the Aref Bank.
