19h - 20h30
Echoing the exhibition "Gaston, au-delà de Lagaffe"
With its dense, perfectionist settings, expressive characters and beautifully rendered movement, beyond the iconic character of Gaston Lagaffe (now celebrating his 60th birthday), Franquin's work is recognised for its originality and rich inventiveness by generations of authors and draughtsmen who still reflect his influence. This event exploring the ingredients of his style invites visitors to find out more about the technique, inspirations and methods of that meticulous craftsman Franquin, creator of the Marsupilami, and author of Idées noires.
