Jacques Henri Lartigue
French, 1894–1986
Follow

Jacques-Henri Lartigue (1894-1986) took his first photograph in 1900 at the age of six. Born into privilege, Lartigue's father was a banker, and the family belonged to the upper French bourgeoisie. Lartigue transfixed the delightful life of the pre-war upper classes with his fleeting visions and a passionate devotion to the pursuit of joy.

All the excitement and allure of the last days of the belle époque are epitomised in Lartigue’s photographs, and he is known for his playful presentation of friends, family and French society at leisure. Lartigue's photographs of sun-drenched holidays on the French Riviera between the Wars crystallise the image of a glamorous era. A dashing figure himself, Lartigue turned his camera on the supremely elegant women who surrounded him: Bibi (his first wife), Florette, and the mysterious Renée Perle.
