"A prince on the hunt" - Albert I of Monaco (1848-1922)
Louis Tinayre

Curator of the exhibition: Claude d'Anthenaise, Anne Beauchef-de Bussac


Trained at the Beaux-Arts in Budapest, where his family was exiled following its involvement in the events of the Commune, Louis Tinayre (1858-1942) distinguished himself on his return to France as a press illustrator.

He developed a remarkable talent for painting and drawing documentaries, especially animal ones. As a "special envoy" of Le Monde Illustré to cover the military expedition to Madagascar in 1895, Tinayre delivered a spectacular reflection of the expedition at the 1900 World's Fair, in the form of panoramas and dioramas.

Noticed by Albert I of Monaco on this occasion, he was associated from 1904 to the oceanographic and hunting expeditions of the sovereign, in charge of documenting them in all their aspects. The media he used to do this were as diverse as watercolors on paper, photographs and monumental decorations for the oceanographic museums and institutes that the Prince inaugurated in Monaco and Paris in the 1910s.


The exhibition brings together a selection of unpublished documents, correspondence, drawings, paintings and other "color notes" of the artist, from the Monegasque collections.
