The pictures accompanying this year’s collection speak of passion for work: of men who are privileged to feel emotion for what they do, witnesses of a new humanism for which we feel the need.

A humanism of sensibility, consciousness, serene dignity, a humanism far from the noises that crowd our times, yet living and vital, growing out of a passion for the arts of which they are masters.

That is what we are looking for every day in what we do. Whitout it, our history would have been different.
