AD­VEN­TURE TIME

Harper’s Bazaar (Malaysia) - - Bazaar Junior -

Hergé’s art­works of Tintin and Snowy Step in­side the mag­i­cal world of artist-author Hergé and Tintin this month with ‘Tintin: Hergé’s Mas­ter­piece.’ Co­in­cid­ing with Riz­zoli’s re­lease of the book with the same name, the ex­hi­bi­tion ex­plores the evo­lu­tion of Tintin’s story, from its hum­ble news­pa­per ori­gins as a weekly cartoon strip right down to the graphic for­mat of the later books. Drawn from the rich archive of the Hergé Mu­seum in Bel­gium are be­hind-the-scenes pen­cil sketches, char­ac­ter draw­ings, and wa­ter­colours that com­ple­ment the orig­i­nal art­work from the fin­ished sto­ries. The ex­hi­bi­tion also fo­cuses on Hergé him­self, whose pas­sion for ar­chi­tec­ture and de­sign had in­spired the de­tailed set­tings of Tintin’s ad­ven­tures – and is memo­ri­alised through the stag­ing of mem­o­rable lo­ca­tions. From Nov 12, 2015 to Jan 31, 2016 at Som­er­set House, Lon­don. www.somert­set­house.org.uk
