Revealing the man behind the masterpiece, this exhibition explores the wonderfully eccentric world of artist-author Hergé and his intrepid young reporter, Tintin.


Stepping inside the wonderfully eccentric world of artist-author Hergé and Tintin, his intrepid young reporter, this exhibition explores the evolution of the artwork of Hergé, from the simplicity of early newspaper strips to the genre-defining graphic work of the later books.

Since he first appeared in 1929, Tintin has become one of the most iconic comic-strip heroes along with a supporting cast of his trusty dog Snowy, Captain Haddock, Professor Calculus, and Thomson and Thompson. With more than 200 million copies of the famous 24 ‘albums’ sold worldwide, Hergé's timeless character and mixture of artistry, history and adventure, continues capture the imagination.
