Long Description:


C’est vers 1982 que Hergé réalise ce projet. Son dernier grand projet, qu’il crayonnait encore quelques semaines avant sa mort, le dessin original en deux parties, était destiné à une maquette au 100e de la fresque de la station de métro Stockel à Bruxelles.
Le talent de Hergé éclate dans ce dessin plein de vivacité et d’humour, où il nous offre plus de 140 personnages, issus de tous ses albums, dans des situations pleines de vie et d’humour. Malheureusement, Hergé ne verra jamais la fresque terminée (plusieurs modifications seront apportées par Bob de Moor lors de la réalisation du projet).



Het was rond 1982 dat Hergé dit project realiseerde. Zijn laatste grote project, dat hij enkele weken voor zijn dood nog aan het pennen was, de originele tekening in twee delen, was bestemd voor een 100ste schaalmodel van het fresco van het metrostation Stockel in Brussel.
Het talent van Hergé komt tot uiting in deze levendige en humoristische tekening, waarin hij ons meer dan 140 personages uit al zijn albums voorschotelt, in situaties vol leven en humor. Helaas heeft Hergé het fresco nooit afgemaakt zien worden (tijdens het project zijn er door Bob de Moor verschillende wijzigingen aangebracht).



It was around 1982 that Hergé carried out this project. His last major project, which he was still pencilling a few weeks before his death, the original two-part drawing, was intended for a 100th scale model of the fresco in the Stockel metro station in Brussels.
Hergé's talent shines through in this lively and humorous drawing, in which he offers us more than 140 characters from all his albums in situations full of life and humour. Unfortunately, Hergé never saw the fresco finished (several changes were made by Bob de Moor during the project).
