Lot description
Vintage print.

Robert Doisneau (1912-1994) was one of France's most popular and prolific reportage photographers. He is known for his modest, playful, and ironic images of amusing juxtapositions, mingling social classes, and eccentrics in contemporary Paris. Influenced by the work of Kertesz, Atget, and Cartier-Bresson, Doisneau has presented a charming vision of human frailty and life as a series of quiet, incongruous moments. He has written: "The marvels of daily life are exciting; no movie director can arrange the unexpected that you find in the street."
