Jan Gabrial looked at the possibility of renting an apartment here in December 1933 for her and Lowry to live in. She had noted the apartment on a list from the American Students and Artists Club; "I discovered Rue de Contentin 32bis. This belonged to Ben Waring, an early Paris date, and recalling the view and its stark black-and-white chic, I approached it hopefully. (Jan Gabrial Inside The Volcano Pg. 37). She was unable to settle on a rent with a German couple who occupied the flat.
