From 25/05/2022 to 31/08/2022
Gallery of portraits exhibited in the gardens of the Villa du Temps retrouvé from May 25 to June 27, 2022.
Starting in 1854, Félix Tournachon, also known as Nadar, opened a photography studio and welcomed the most important of his time (members of the aristocracy and the bourgeoisie, artists, and politicians), attracted by the development of photography.
All of Paris came to Nadar’s studio, and among his clients were Marcel Proust’s acquaintances and close friends, whom he observed and from whom he drew inspiration for the characters in his work In Search of Lost Time.
You can now discover these people immortalized by Nadar by taking a stroll in the gardens of the Villa.
This exhibition was made possible with the photographic collection of the Médiathèque de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine (MAP).
