Lhote took his pupils to the Louvre to study classical artists and to Paris galleries to study contemporary art. First edition. As part of an upper-middle class family, Cartier-Bresson spent time in both Paris and in Normandy during his childhood years.

The two men both had an interest in photography, and Harry presented Henri with his first camera. Introduction by Robert Shaplen.
