The photographer Lartigue
Jacques Henri Lartigue, 1894-1986
Jacques Henri Lartigue thought of himself primarily as a painter and was only ‘discovered’ as a photographer in 1963, at the age of 69, when an exhibition of his work opened at the Museum of Modern Art, New York. Throughout the course of his life Lartigue created an amazing body of photographs, filling scores of albums with his prints and written diaries.
