Description

Couverture du roman de Blaise Cendrars pour les éditions Folio. L'oeuvre présente est une autobiographie car Cendrars a perdu sa main droite en 1915 pendant une bataille.

Comment

J'ai toujours aimé la façon dont Tardi arrive à illustrer la 1ère guerre à travers
des images fortes. J'ai apprecié ici le contraste des 3 poilus et la musique du
phonographe avec en toile de fond un Christ en souffrance.

About Jacques Tardi

Jacques Tardi is without a doubt one of the most important artists of his generation. He invented a new variation within the clear line style and in this way inspired many artists. Tardi's expressionistic style is perfect for his stories about World War I and about the underworld of the city. Tardi is the father of "the new realism" and a master in depicting both the old city of Paris as the awful life in the trenches of the Big War. Text (c) Lambiek
