The New York Times Book Review, Rosemary Ranck
Never has the leisure of the privileged class seemed more appealing than in the photographs of Jacques-Henri Lartigue.... Lartigue has created a world like that of the 18th-century painter Fragonard--enchanting and frivolous, with life's disappointments and sorrow well out of frame. Mary Blume ... provides an interesting and sympathetic text.
Playboy, April 1999
With its tremendous and rare color photographs, Lartigue's Riviera . . . evokes a magical way of life.
Jacques-Henri Lartigue (18941986), celebrated photographer, and one of the greatest practitioners the medium has ever known, discovered the Riviera when he was just eleven years old. For the rest of his life Lartigue was a regular visitor to the Cote d'Azur, taking many of his finest pictures in Nice, Cannes, Cap d'Ail, Antibes, Menton, and Monaco. This splendid volume is the first book to bring together a large selection of these photographs which are accompanied by a lively, informative text.
