This small catalogue was produced for a Doisneau exhibition held at the Fondation Nationale de la Photographie, Lyon in March of 1982. Included are some of Doisneau's best-known portraits. A very scarce French title in Fine condition.
Includes a card from Rapho Agence de Presse dated Jan. 7, 1982 that reads:
"Mr. Kitaj came to the office today and chose the picture Coco, 1952" by Robert Doisneau (I don't know whether you have this in your collection or not.)
Doisneau was in the office at the time and he and Kitaj both had the great pleasure of meeting each other. Best regards, Barbara .."
Some yellowing and light edge wear to wrappers and pages; otherwise Fine.
