Trained at the Fine Arts in Budapest, where his family was exiled following his 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 documentary painting and drawing, especially animal ones. “Special Envoy” of the Illustrated World to cover the military expedition to Madagascar in 1895, Tinayre delivers a spectacular reflection of it at the 1900 Universal Exhibition, in the form of panoramas and dioramas.

Noticed by Albert I of Monaco on this occasion, he was associated in 1 with the sovereign's oceanographic and hunting expeditions, with the responsibility of documenting them in all their aspects. The media invested to do this are as diverse as watercolor on paper, photography or the monumental decor for the museums and oceanographic institutes that the Prince inaugurated in Monaco and Paris in the 1904s.

The exhibition brings together a selection of unpublished documents, correspondence, drawings, paintings and other “color notes” by the artist, from Monegasque collections.
