Belgian gallerist Roger Szmulewicz, a true Gainsbourg fan, exhibits over forty pictures from different moments in the life of a man that made his mark in French music culture and history. But not only that. The looks, the theatricality of gestures, has constructed a model for an entire generation of rock musicians, notably in the English new wave....
