Discover two great galleries in one… The first is dedicated to vintage photography and specializes in oriental, erotic and gay pictures from the early 20th century. Baron Von Gloeden, Von Pluschow, Vincenzo Galdi, and Jean Boulet are some of the great photographers available for purchase. Some works are numbered editions, some are unique, some are very affordable and magnificent starting at only 50 euros. The second room of Au Bonheur du Jour is a Baroque Boudoir, dedicated to painting, sculpture and personalities. In this warm decor you’ll find original photos by French stars from Studio Harcourt, as well as realistic paintings from the 1930’s representing sailors, military men athletes and exotic beauties. Many drawings of academic masculine nudes from 19th century are also presented. For over 20 years, Nicole Canet has welcomed guests in her intimate world. You will soon realize that most of these vintage art works are now surprisingly comtemporary by their extravagance and natural beauty.

Une galerie d'art incontournable et rare dirigée par Nicole Canet, une personne passionnée qui connaît son sujet à la perfection.

Une galerie fort intéressante pour son histoire et ce qu elle décrit : le Paris du plaisir des années folles, un Paris libertin enjoué sans tabou et secret , on y découvre des perles rares à des petits prix des tirages photos anciens mais aussi des peintures, une galerie dédié à l érotisme et à la beauté des corps de femmes et d'hommes aux amours variables et incertaines. La propriétaire des lieux , Nicole Canet est une véritable bible vivante du Paris libertin et interlope.
