In 14 rare and evocative black-and-white images taken by some of France’s greatest photographers from the first half of the 20th century, this 2014 wall calendar reveals an iconic, captivating world of romance and nostalgia. Every month offers a new image of visual and emotional power, from the pensive lovers in the Tuilerie gardens to a Parisian mother kissing her small son goodbye on the first day of school; from the return of the Mona Lisa to the Louvre after five years in hiding during the war to workers proudly hoisting the French tricolore high atop the Eiffel Tower on Bastille Day. These striking images are part of the photography collections of the Agence Roger-Viollet in Paris, a distinguished archive of historic French photographs founded in 1938. The calendar features the work of six eminent photographers working in France from the 1920s to the 1950s: Gaston Paris, Pierre Jahan, Laure Albin Guillot, Roger Schall, Jack Nisberg, and Rene-Jacques.
