Review: Jacques Henri Lartigue at Howard Greenberg
Lartigue's earliest photographs were made at the turn of the last century, when he was a child, and if the excitement, spontaneity, playfulness, and wonder of those pictures were difficult to sustain in his later years, they never entirely disappeared.
This exhibition of vintage and early prints might well be the most charming and exhilarating show in town. Included are some of Lartigue's most famous images, along with many more never shown before, nearly all of people in motion: diving, jumping, skating, or simply strolling in the park; in flimsy biplanes, flimsier go-carts, and huge automobiles.
