Georges Remi, known as Hergé, was a Belgian cartoonist best known for the beloved comic The Adventures of Tintin. Often referred to as “the father of the European comic strip”, he was one of the first French-speaking authors to use American-style comic strip with speech bubbles. The exhibition, at Grand Palais from September 28th 2016 until January 15th 2017, looks back on his creative approach, fed by the cinema, painting, photography and adventure novels and his passion for drawing. It shows how the universally recognized drawings of Hergé fit in with both his era and the history of art.
