New issue on 18 July 2022


From July 16 to September 11, 2022, the Quai Antoine I room in Monaco will house the exhibition “The Prince and the Painter. Albert I and Louis Tinayre, a friendship discovering the world”. It will present the work of Tinayre, which has remained unknown, giving pride of place to the drawings and paintings made for Prince Albert I. A graduate of The Budapest Academy of Fine Arts, Louis Tinayre became a newspaper illustrator for Le Monde. His drawings, dioramas and panoramas were shown at the Universal Exhibition in Paris in 1900. Prince Albert I appreciated his work and asked him to accompany him on his scientific campaigns and hunting expeditions from 1904.
