Abandoned apartment 1942

Madame de Florian was a French socialite and actress who fled to the south of France during World War II. She kept her apartment in Paris on the Right Bank near the Opéra Garnier, though, in case she wanted to return. However, she never went back to it after the war. Since 1942, the apartment has been sitting untouched, until recently when an auctioneer entered her apartment. What he found was a time capsule, full of treasures.

The apartment was covered in dust, perfectly preserved. All of the furniture from the time period remained just how she left it. It looks as if she was just there yesterday. The home is not open to the public and is still owned by her estate. Inside, a painting by Giovanni Boldini was found, a portrait of the apartment’s owner herself Madame de Florian. The painting was sold for 2.1 million euros and the rest of the items inside of the apartment would be worth thousands as well.

The apartment was able to remain abandoned and untouched because Madame de Florian continued paying the rent until her death in 2010 at the age of 91. Despite paying the rent, she never returned.

Does the above drawing ring a bell?  Check out a feature-length documentary by Danish director Andreas Johnsen, titled Ai Weiwei: The Fake Case, recently premiered at the International Documentary Film Festival Amsterdam, Netherlands. The film focuses on a legal tussle between the authorities and Fake, Ai Weiwei’s company, over an alleged $2.5 million tax evasion.
