With his droll humour and simple lines, Jean-Jacques Sempé (1932-2022) lit up the pages of magazines and books for more than 70 years. In a collaborative venture with the Martine Gossieaux Gallery in Paris, the great illustrator was celebrated at the Fondation Folon, at the heart of the Solvay Regional Estate. Spanning his first humorous drawings in Moustique magazine, his covers for the New Yorker, the creation of Le Petit Nicolas and more than 40 comic books, this exhibition included more than 120 original illustrations. A fitting tribute to the mischievous and whimsical world of a much-loved artist.
