This exhibition is dedicated to talented artist Florence Henri. Known first for her paintings and later for her avant-garde photographies, Henri travelled and lived in several countries before settling in Paris in 1924.

Visitors will discover her production from 1927 to 1940, including her self-portraits, abstract compositions, portraits of artists, nudes, photomontages, photocollages, as well as documentary photos taken in Rome, Paris and Brittany.

Despite the central position that her work occupied in avant-garde photography at the end of the 1920s, her reputation as a portraitist in Paris, and the fact that her photos had been published in many of the period’s illustrated magazines, Florence Henri’s body of work remains largely unknown.

The exhibition tends to introduces this major artist to a modern public.
