Originally intended to be a salon, the Salle Blanche of the Casino de Monte-Carlo houses the painting known as “Les Grâces Florentines”, by the Belle Epoque artist Paul Gervais from Toulouse, depicting the famous courtesans Cléo de Mérode, la Belle Otéro and Lyane de Pougy, all of whom had a fondness for casinos. Today, with its many gaming tables, it is one of the Casino’s most popular rooms.
