    Description

    Enki Bilal Baby-Boom Couverture (Éditions Mazarine, 1985). Cette intrigante illustration a été réalisée pour la couverture du recueil de nouvelles de Jean Vautrin, Baby-boom - qui remportera d'ailleurs le prix Goncourt de la nouvelle. La collaboration des deux hommes ne s'est pas arrêtée là et tous deux se sont retrouvés autour des Aventures de Boro, reporter photographe. Réalisée à la gouache sur papier cartonné, l'œuvre présente une grande finesse dans le traitement du fond. La patte de l'artiste est parfaitement reconnaissable dans le visage de la femme, à l'expression si dure. L'orignal (24 x 33 cm) est en très bon état.
