Blutch. Making a markReturn
Description : Blutch, a well-known French comic strip creator, has agreed to choose a number of works from four important collections in the Strasbourg Museums: the Prints and Drawings Cabinet, the MAMCS, the Museums Library and the Tomi Ungerer Museum. These works are being exhibited as part of “Joyful Frictions”, a new trail through the MAMCS’ permanent collections. Through some sixty drawings and engravings, new dialogues are established between Gustave Doré, Tomi Ungerer, Max Klinger, Druillet, Böklin, Blutch and many others. The invitation extended to Blutch continues in Aubette 1928 with the presentation of the plates from To Put an End to the Cinema, a cartoon-essay published in 2011. In this book, Blutch portrays both himself and his favourite actors and actresses, including Jean Gabin, Michel Piccoli, Burt Lancaster, Claudia Cardinale and Catherine Deneuve. As a discerning film fan, he includes the directors and films that have left their mark on him, such as Tarzan and Psycho. He deftly steers a route between the derisory and the fantastic, between irony and declarations of love.
