Elliott Erwitt, portraits of dogs - portraits of humans

  • Visiting the exhibition at the Maillol Museum is a true recreation ! Because the eye that the photographer Elliott Erwitt of the Magnum agency on the human race is inevitably tender and mischievous
  • We discover as many portraits of great men that he managed to make smile - from Charles de Gaulle to Che Guevara - than starsLike Marylin Monroe in full ascension, he reveals all the humanity through a gracious and complicit look.
  • But the most important part the funniest, even comical and which will please the most the children is devoted to dogs in situations with their owners, a subject to which Elliot Erwitt is truly passionate! Dogs: ears erect, wearing a cap, at the racetrack or at the standing on legs as if leaning on a counter! A comical situation that has no equal for to make us burst out laughing! It is even said that the photographer, ready to start his camera, was barking to make the dogs react!
  • More than 200 works on display, always aesthetic and offbeat, which take us into a zany, offbeat world where childhood is never far away.
