Paris: Hergé Gallery Show at the Grand Palais 28 September 2016 to 15 January 2017

If you are in Paris, this looks like a great exhibition of Hergé's career ....

There is no longer any need to present the career of Georges Remi, known as Hergé, Belgian cartoonist best known for 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 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 recognised drawings of Hergé fit in with both his era and the history of art.
