Description

Portrait d'adolescente très détaillé par le créateur de Martine. On pourrait d'ailleurs imaginer qu'il s'agit d'une Martine adolescente tant certains traits du visage sont ressemblants.

Hormis de nombreuses dédicaces de petite taille, l'auteur ne réalisait guère de portraits de cette taille : 30 x 39 cm..

About Marcel Marlier

Marcel Marlier (18 November 1930 – 18 January 2011) was a Belgian artist and illustrator. He was born in Herseaux, Belgium. When he was 16, he enrolled in decorative art at Saint-Luc de Tournai. He finished his studies in 1951 with the greatest distinction. He returned as a teacher two years later. The Belgian publisher La Procure à Namur organized a drawing contest. They were interested in finding talented artists to illustrate works for school children. Marlier won the competition. Two books resulted from this and these books guided a whole generation of Belgian children through the first few years of school, I Read with Michel and Nicole and I Calculate with Michel and Nicole. Marlier's collaboration with La Procure à Namur lasted more than 25 years.
