The exhibition Brassaï – Pour l’amour de Paris at Palazzo Morando in Milan is dedicated to the intense work of one of the 20th-century’s greatest photographers. It tells the exceptional story of a passion that united Brassaï for over fifty years with Paris and with all the people who contributed to the city’s legendary fame.
Born in 1899 at Brasso (modern-day Brasov) in Transylvania, Gyula Halász (he took the name Brassaï when he began photographing in 1929) was only four years old when he arrived with his father in Paris for the first time. For the rest of his life, Brassaï would hold this city as the source of his oeuvre.
Please note that the opening times of this exhibition is from Tuesday to Sunday, from 10:00 to 19:00, which is slightly different from the opening times of the museum.
