This is the catalogue to the museum exhibition ("Calvo: un maître de la fable" or "Calvo catalog: a master of the fable") mounted for the Angouleme Comics Festival in January 2020. In co-production with the Cité Internationale de la Bande Dessinée et de l'Image.
The famous author of The Beast is dead! has since the 1940s changed the face of comics with his albums featuring animal heroes. Marked by the First World War, Calvo would often stage situations of great violence, hidden under the softness and dynamism of his line and the cheerful attitudes of the animals. Discover his exceptional work in this catalog, presenting more than 150 original pages and unpublished documents.
All the artwork is newly scanned in high resolution with color calibration.
Limited to 1500 copies.
