  • Catalogue Essay

    The work being offered in the current lot was sent directly from Jacques Henri Lartigue to Howard Zieff in the early- to mid- 1960s while Zieff was working in advertising as a commercial photographer. Around the same time, Charles Rado of the Rapho agency became interested in Lartigue’s photographs, leading to an exhibition of his work at The Museum of Modern Art, New York, a spread in LIFE magazine in 1963 and renewed public interest in the photographer. This work is accompanied by a letter of provenance from Howard Zieff’s wife describing how the print was acquired.
