La ronde antique, 1880-1910
La Castiglione, the aristocratic mistress of Emperor Napoleon III.
“For four decades she directed Pierre-Louis Pierson to help her create 700 different photographs in which she re-created the signature moments of her life for the camera. She spent a large part of her personal fortune and even went into debt to execute this project.”
