A Balcony in Paris (French: Un balcon à Paris) is an oil on canvas painting by the French Impressionist painter Gustave Caillebotte. It was completed ca. 1880–81. The dimensions of the painting are 55.2 by 39 centimeters. It is housed in a private collection.
This painting is one of several by Caillebotte in which an urban street, viewed from a balcony, is seen through the spaces of an ornate iron grill in the foreground, differentiating the space of the street from the interior of the bourgeois home. The motif may have been inspired by similar juxtapositions seen in many Japanese ukiyo-e prints.
