Georges Remi called Hergé, is a Belgian author and cartoonist born in 1907 in Etterbeek( Blegium) he died in 1983 in Woluwe-Saint-Lambert (Belgium). He is the Author of the Famous Adventures of Tintin.
Hergé's influences are numerous and vary considerably throughout the years. During the 20s his work reflected the techniques of Benjamin Rabier, during the 30s those of Alain Saint- Ogan, master of French comic strips, He got inspired by Chinese calligraphy by Le Lotus Bleu. During the 60s, he became fascinated by modern art artists such as Joan Miro and Lucio Fontana.
Hergé's technique evolved a lot. The first Adventures of Tintin were marked by their lack of clarity and the black and white contrasts. But his last pieces are the opposite, they are clear and colorful. Hergé is considered the pioneer and theorist of the "clear line". His favorite subjects are adventure, travelling and the reproduction of human societies.
Hergé won several awards and decorations such as the Adamson Award for best international writer in 1971 and the Grand Prize Saint Michel in 1973. Posthumously he was awarded the Jack Kirby Hall of Fame (1999) and the Temple of Fame Renamed Will Eisner (2003).
