About Annie Goetzinger
Annie Goetzinger was a French graphic novelist, known for her often biographical comics about strong women. Her work is aimed at a mature audience and reveals her background in fashion design. Her earlier drawings show a strong influence of the Art Nouveau movement, not only in her characters, but also in her panel designs. Most of Goetzinger's stories have a feminine point of view, from her biographies about Amélie Élie, Aurore Dupin, Christian Dior and Colette through the series of portraits of women she made with writer Pierre Christin, but also her fictional series 'Félina' and 'Agence Hardy'. Most of her work has been published in book format by Glénat, Dargaud, Les Humanoïdes Associés and Éditions des Femmes. Goetzinger was one of the most prominent female comics artists of her generation, alongside Claire Brétécher and Chantal Montellier.
