Punch Cartoon Art - Courtyard hunt scene - Jean-Jaques Sempe (1960) - Framed Picture - 11" x 14"


Jean-Jacques Sempe, usually known as Sempe, is a French cartoonist.

He is known for the series of children's books he created with Rene Goscinny, Le petit Nicolas, and also for his poster-like illustrations, usually drawn from a distant or high viewpoint depicting detailed countrysides or cities.

His career started in France within the context of the Franco-Belgian comics industry. His "mute" watercolors or single image sketches, where the characters speak in pictures or not at all (but somehow manage to convey a rich story) slowly gained international attention. He won his first award in 1952 which is given to encourage young amateur artists to turn professional.
