Designed by the curator Clotilde Scordia, in collaboration with Atelier Robert Doisneau, the exhibition is based on two themes: artists’ portraits and workshops, on the one hand, and views of Lyon, on the other.
This all-new exhibition presents several series of original prints by the famous French photographer, who is known around the world for his touching and sensitive portraits and genre scenes.
Musée Jean Couty is exhibiting more than 90 photographs, of which twenty or so have never been shown to the public. Charles and Myriam Couty, the museum’s directors, have also had thirty or so prints made, including photos of Lyon taken during the Vogue years.
A humanist to the core, the artist Robert Doisneau revealed an extraordinary world that speaks to all with its poetry and relevance, right up to the present day.
