Studios Hergé: Poster in the V&A collection

#1 · Posted: 30 Nov 2020 17:28
I was interested to discover just now that there is a work by Hergé in the Prints, Drawings & Paintings collection of the Victoria & Albert Museum in London.
The item on question is a striking lithographic poster, measuring 82cm x 105cm, for Le Vingtième Siècle newspaper, dating from 1934.
It shows a stylized newspaper-seller on a bright orange background, carrying a copy of the paper, which has been added to the image by collage, using a real front page; there is a panel at the bottom of the poster for advertising copy.
This panel mentions features of the paper, including Le Petit Vingtième, the children's supplement Hergé, edited and for which he had been drawing The Adventures of Tintin for five years.

It's a fine example of Hergé's commercial art of the period, which he produced under the Atelier Hergé banner (a forerunner of his Studios Hergé name).

That's a really fine design, thank you for showing it.
