COLOR PHOTOGRAPHY OF JACQUES HENRI LARTIGUE
Jacques Henri Lartigue is one of the great photographers of the 20th century - known for his whimsical, action based black and white work.
Many people are not as familiar with his color photography. Beautiful and engaging, it is very different than the Lartigue we're familiar with.

Lartigue's color photography was done during 2 different periods. The first was his use of Autochrome plates from 1911-1926. Autochrome had a specific look used by photographers such as Heinrich Kuen.
Lartigue went back to color a second time in the mid 1950's with film as by this time he was shooting 35mm with his Leica's and 120 format with his Rolleiflex. The work from this period is absolutely wonderful and rivals many of his contemporaries doing color work at the mid-century such as Saul Leiter.
