All these portraits reflect the twentieth century, the richness of HCB’s work and his taste for literature and painting: from Pablo Picasso, Henri Matisse and Simone de Beauvoir in the forties, through Marilyn Monroe, Alberto Giacometti and Coco Chanel in the sixties to Robert Doisneau in 1986.
Through these portraits Henri Cartier-Bresson succeeds in capturing in one second the eternity of the eye, the “inner silence of a willing victim”.
