  • Original Tintin cover poised to fetch record price in Paris auction

    Paris (France), 13 Jan (EFE / EPA), (Camera: Ian Langsdon / María Díaz Valderrama).- Paris, Jan 13 (EFE).- An original painting for the cover of a 1936 Tintin album by Belgian artist Georges Remi, better known as Hergé, is set for auction in Paris Thursday and could fetch a record-breaking price. The current highest price for a Tintin artwork was set at 2.6 million euros back in 2014.FOOTAGE OF THE OBJECTS THAT WILL GO TO AUCTION ON THURSDAY.SOUNDBITES OF ÉRIC LEROY, SPECIALIST IN ARTCURIAL COMICS:"This work of art, the initial cover for the 1936 series 'Blue Lotus', was rejected by the editor, Casterman, for economic reasons, since it was too expensive to publish and reproduce. Hergé created a new drawing and gave this cover to the editor's son, Jean-Paul Casterman, who kept it throughout his life". "This is the first time that Hergé makes real research. Until then, he has only used some books for the Congo series or "Tintin in the Land of the Soviets". In this case, someone describes China to him and it is a well documented comic book. For the first time, Hergé is aware that he can’t tell whatever to his readers."
