Henri Martinie who was born in Corrèze in 1885 had a career particularly centered on literary circles. During the years 1920 to 1940 in his studio on the rue de Penthièvre, he took an exceptional group of portraits of French and foreign writers, among them Philippe Soupault, Georges Bernanos, Jean Cocteau, James Joyce and Paul Eluard. In addition, the Martinie Sudio worked regularly at the French National Assembly taking portraits of elected representatives until the 1950s. Henri Martinie died in Paris in 1965. His entire production--nearly 15,000 negatives--was acquired by Roger-Viollet in 1968.
