On the first floor of the Hotel du Panthéon, whose theme is the ‘cocottes’ of the Second Empire, we wanted to sidestep the clichés so often used in literature and film to depict them as actresses or singers of easy virtue.
With this in mind, we asked Patrick Tournebœuf to provide photos of theatres and dressing rooms featuring the lush reds that are so typical of the places where these ladies were often seen.
You can see more photos in the first floor rooms of the hotel (second floor for you Americans!)…
