    Description

    Philippe Berthet Sur la route de Selma Planche 52 (Dupuis, 1991). Sur la route de Selma se déroule dans les années '60, au cœur du Sud des Etats-Unis. C'est dans ce monde très « White Power » qu'est plongé Clement Brown, un homme noir qui a le malheur d'aimer une femme blanche. Le dessin de Philippe Berthet est précis, en quête de lignes de fuite inédites et usant de cadrages très cinématographiques. Comme dans cette planche (34 x 44 cm), issue de la légendaire séquence prenant place dans le cimetière d'avions. Etat parfait.
    Philippe Berthet Sur la route de Selma Page 52 (Dupuis, 1991). Sur la route de Selma takes place in the sixties, in the heart of the American South. It is in this very "White Power" world that Clement Brown is plunged, a black man who has the misfortune of loving a white woman. Philippe Berthet's drawing is precise, seeing out fresh, flowing lines and using very cinematographic framing. As in this page, taken from the legendary sequence which unfolds in an airplane graveyard. Ink on Bristol board, with an image area of 11.75" x 15.5". Signed in the lower Right. In Excellent condition.
