Jenny de Vasson was one of the first and most talented female photographers in Europe. She was born in this town house on the 20th August 1872 and lived here until 1878. At that time her father, Paulin de Vasson, was the public prosecutor of La Châtre. Mixing with Berrichon* artists (Nivet, Maillaud...), Jenny de Vasson took thousands of photographs of her native Berry, of its inhabitants, and of her numerous journeys in Europe. Her photographic work, rare and sensitive, is the reflection of former society.
* "Berrichon" a native of the Berry region.
