From 29 February to 12 June 2020 the Casa dei Tre Oci in Venice hosts the largest retrospective ever organized in Italy, dedicated to the French photographer Jacques Henri Lartigue (1894-1986).
The photographic exhibition “L’invenzione della felicità“, curated by Marion Perceval and Charles-Antoine Revol, respectively director and project manager of the Donation Jacques Henri Lartigue, and Denis Curti, artistic director of the Casa dei Tre Oci, is organized by Civita Tre Venezie and promoted by the Venice Foundation, in close collaboration with the Donation Jacques Henri Lartigue of Paris, under the patronage of the French Ministry of Culture.
The exhibition presents 120 images, 55 of which are unpublished, all coming from personal photo albums Lartigue, some of which will be on display pages in facsimile.
To these are added some archival materials that retrace his entire career, from the beginning of the early 1900s to the 1980s and reconstruct the history of this photographer and his rediscovery.
