Next September, Belgian cartoonist best known for The Adventures of Tintin and contemporary art collector, Georges Remi, also known as Hergé will be the subject of a significant exhibition at Le Grand Palais in Paris. 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 in his albums. The exhibition, from 28 September, will look back on his creative approach, the famous characters he’s invented, and will explores the author’s relationship with cinema, painting, photography and literature.
