After the Russian-born composer and conductor Igor Stravinsky (1882-1971) got famous in France, he had to emigrate to America in 1939. There he first lived in Los Angeles and later moved to New York, where he spent his last years in Manhattan.
Since the 1940s Henri Cartier-Bresson used to photograph the American composer several times. This particular portrait shows the vividness and the vigliant curiosity of the revolutionary musician.
