Lartigue, father and son

The exhibition « Lartigue, père & fils » (Lartigue, Father and Son) is on display through October 31, 2015,  at the Château de la Messardière, a prestigious 5-star hotel perched on the Saint-Tropez hills in the south of France. Built in the 19th century, this magnificent castle was a wedding gift for Henry Brisson de la Messardière, a cavalry officer, and Louise Dupuy d’Angeac, a young artist and musician, and since that time has dedicated itself to organizing art exhibitions. The castle has organized art exhibitions within its walls ever since.
