Winter pictures

Thematic exhibition

Between 1913 and 1981 Jacques Henri Lartigue stayed in Saint-Moritz, Chamonix, and Megève a dozen or so times. The world of alpine sports had a formative influence on his vision. The skis, sleds, skates, curling, bobsleighs and even propeller-driven sleds flew past and provided a perfect pretext for his visual apology for movement. Even if snow also brought more intimate, contemplative moments.
