This event has ended.

The first time that the photographic works of Jacques Henri Lartigue came to light was at a retrospective exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, New York, in 1963, when Lartigue was already 69 years of age. However, the debut of this late bloomer caused a major stir around the world. Lartigue’s exhibition was quickly followed by publications of his works, and along with another French amateur photographer, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Lartigue carved his name in the annals of the history of photography. With the cooperation of the Jacques Henri Lartigue Donation, this exhibition is pleased to present 25 of Lartigue’s photographic works taken from the very early years of the 1900s to the second decade of the 20th century that depict the brilliance and gaiety of France’s belle époque.
