Saint-Tropez: « Lartigue, father and son » exhibition
At the Château de la Messardière, a member of the Leading Hotels of the World, revolving around the theme “Saint-Tropez Today”, the “Lartigue, Father and Son” exhibition mixes photographs by Jacques-Henri Lartigue and pictorial works by Dany Lartigue. Perched at the top of a hill, for many years the chateau has been a rendezvous for lovers of elegant places and lively crowds that constantly invade this little Varois village! This magnificent Tropezien hotspot, classified as a luxury resort since June 2012, offers 57 suites and 60 bedrooms, all benefiting from a terrace or private garden, allowing guests to drink in sublime panoramic views. The Château de la Messardière has always been a favourite port of call for artists and General Manager Alexandre Durand-Viel maintains this tradition by organising major exhibitions. These pieces by Jacques-Henri Lartigue and his son Dany, two celebrated 20th artists, will take centre stage the Château from 28th August and 31st October. A.F.-M.
