Institutions

Studio Harcourt : The Art of revealing and sublimating through the Portrait since 1934. (#20)

Imagined by Cosette Harcourt, the Studio Harcourt, took its marks in 1934 in the very chic 8th arrondissement of Paris and preserves and cultivates the fundamental values ​​that have forged its success and reputation : the requirement of excellence, respect for an aesthetic, French elegance and a very Parisian art of welcoming.

Studio Harcourt’s aesthetic draws its heritage from the glamorous roots of the golden age of French black and white cinema. Often imitated but never equaled, the Harcourt style has become a pledge of eternity, an iconographic reference which, over the years, has established itself as an essential signature.

A true institution, today labeled “Living Heritage Company”, Harcourt is the pictorial memory of the great artistic, cultural and political figures of the 20th century, the legend stands out as obvious, defying the passage of time.
