Overview

Fast Cars and Femmes Fatales: The Photographs of Jacques Henri Lartigue

The exhibition spans the years from 1907 to 1958 and reproductions of pages of his photo albums give insight into Lartigue’s creative process and his acute observations of life.

The privileged, younger son in a wealthy, glamorous French family, Jacques-Henri Lartigue (1894–1986) was a first-hand witness to the amusements and pleasures of life in the Belle-Époque and early-20th century France. A thoughtful and artistic child, Lartigue began taking photographs at age six and from the moment he was given his first camera at age eight, he incessantly documented his world, creating a singular record of a storybook-like existence.
