On the occasion of the Parcours Saint-Germain whose theme for the 2019 edition is La Fleur de l’Art, agnès b. has the pleasure to show works by Martin Parr, an artist she was one of the first to show in her gallery, the galerie du Jour and which photographs are also in her collection.
Among the themes dear to the British photographer are food, tourism, couples scenes… but also flowers…
In 2001, agnès wrote: “It was during 2 to 3 years that Martin Parr showed me this work on flowers. The flowers in life, the “consolation” flowers to make it perhaps more cheerful?” At the time, agnès had even made a small book that will be available in the exhibition!
