By Jean-Jacques Sempé

Sempé is tender, melancholy and deeply human. You can spend several minutes looking at a Sempé illustration, as you would a painting in a gallery.

Sempé’s cartoons blend humour and poetry in whimsical portraits of countrysides and cityscapes, often seen from a high viewpoint, in which tiny figures move around in their neat moustaches and berets. Quintessentially French, his illustrations are timeless and exquisite.
