- Harcourt Studio (Paris)
Founded in Paris in 1934, Harcourt Studio draws its inspiration from the glamor of black and white cinema. Like other major French luxury and decorative arts brands, Harcourt Studio is the holder of the « Living Heritage Company » label for its craftsmanship and industrial know-how synonymous with excellence. For more than 80 years, the «Harcourt style» has been characterized by close-up portraits of celebrities photographed at their best angle, most of them three-quarter and / or under-dive. Nearly 150 photographers contributed to Harcourt’s legend that a movie light symbolically represent throughout its inimitable chiaroscuro.
