Identification: Are these old drawings by Hergé?

#1 · Posted: 19 Jan 2016 10:30 · Edited by: Moderator
Hey All,
I have found these three drawings while cleaning the attic of an old building in Brussels.
Does anyone here think they are genuine drawings by Hergé?
The paper is very, very dirty and the autographs seem to say Hergé, but seem different from the 'genuine' ones I found online.
Is there anyone around here who can help me?
You can find the images here:

Hi Senne - sorry to say, there is absolutely no chance that those are original Hergé drawings: the style is wrong, the execution is very very poor, and the signature as you say, is not even close.

Whoever did them does not appear to ever have seen a Hergé pencil sketch, as they have composed them in a manner he never used, suggesting that they have been made by a child to amuse themselves, copying them from books.
