Quai d'Anjou

This angled embankment lined with beautiful trees is home to several fine mansions: that of the Marquise de Lambert, who held a literary salon here; and the Hôtel de Lauzun, at n° 17, built in 1657 and famous for hosting Théophile Gautier and Baudelaire. Completely renovated in 2013 by the City of Paris, it is now home to the Institute of Advanced Studies, a body devoted to scientific research. At n° 9 stands the house where the caricaturist Honoré Daumier depicted the trials and tribulations of the July monarchy.
