1986 - Jacques Henri Lartigue

Jacques Henri Lartigue became a photographer at a very young age. Before going on to become one of the most famous photographers of the 20th century following his first personal showing at the New York Museum of Modern Art in 1963, J.H. Lartigue was a renowned painter between the world wars. Jacques Henri Lartigue passed away on the same year that he made this magnificent photo of Château Lafite Rothschild and its grapevines in 1985. Daniel Vignat only needed to place one single phone call to J.H. Lartigue, who at 91 years old was still very enthusiastic, taking his camera cross on one shoulder, his only worry being to make sure that there were good wines to sip!
