TINTIN: Herge's Masterpiece
This winter, Somerset House presents TINTIN: Hergé’s Masterpiece. Stepping inside the wonderfully eccentric world of artist-author Hergé and Tintin, his intrepid young reporter, the exhibition will explore the evolution of the artwork of Hergé, from the simplicity of early newspaper strips to the genre-defining graphic work of the later books.  Drawing on the archives of the Hergé Museum in Belgium, TINTIN: Hergé’s Masterpiecewill feature pencil sketches, character drawings, and watercolours alongside original artwork from the finished stories.

Models/installations of memorable locations such as Tintin’s apartment will be displayed and the exhibition will be themed with reference to one of Hergé’s favourite backdrops - Marlinspike Hall, Captain Haddock’s country house once owned by his maritime ancestor, Sir Francis Haddock.

Since he first appeared in Hergé's weekly cartoon strip in Le Petit Vingtième in Brussels 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 which also recently inspired a Hollywood blockbuster, Hergé's timeless character continues to attract new generations of fans to his stories for their unique mixture of artistry, history and adventure.
