Jacques Henri Lartigue, 1981

French artist Jacques Henri Lartigue died on this day, September 12, in 1986 (b. 1894). Born in Paris to a wealthy family, Lartigue started taking photographs when he was seven. He was photographed by Karsh in 1981 and the sitting notes say: “Guest at Roger Therond’s home when YK visited during trip to Paris March 1981″ Therond was the editor of that magazine and was himself photographed in 1981, two days before Lartigue’s sitting.
