Studio in Rue de La Condamine or Bazille's Studio is an 1870 painting by the French artist Frédéric Bazille.[1] An early Impressionist work, it has been in the Musée d'Orsay in Paris since 1986.

The painting shows the artist himself surrounded by his friends, including painters Eduard Manet and Pierre Auguste Renoir, in his studio on the rue de la Condamine which Bazille shared with Renoir from January 1868 to May 1870. The tall Bazille is centre stage, holding a palette, having in his own words been "painted in by Manet". On the right, Edmond Maître, a friend of Bazille, is seated at the piano under a Monet still life. Manet is talking to Bazille and Renoir is seated.

The pictures on the wall surrounding the up-and-coming group of progressive artists are ones that had been rejected at some time by the Salon and for which Bazille is expressing his support.
