Jacques-Henri Lartigue
From October 13th 1975 to November 20th 1975
Exposition solo / Solo exhibition

"Jacques-Henri Lartigue, the eminent French photographer, has been photographing the life around him for 70 years. Lartigue’s humorous deft eye transformed an essentially personal diary of photographs into a unique record of the century. ‘Photography is a magic thing,’ wrote the 7-year-old Lartigue and the magic infuses the casual portraits of Picasso, Colette, and the diverse personalities of Paris in the 1920’s, his marriages and the continuing antics of his family through two world wars up until the present. It was not until 1962, however, that the photographs were first seen publicly, and in the decade since, major exhibitions have been held at the Louvre, and most notably at the Museum of Modern Art. The result : a remarkable book, Diary of a Century."
