Steve Bell exhibition

BELL BROCHETTE

The Presidents of the French Republic drawn by Steve Bell, cartoonist of the Guardian newspaper

Steve Bell has been the Guardian's cartoonist since the beginning of the 1980s and, as such, he has drawn the latest five French Presidents. Through his editorial cartoons and his comic strip called "If"…", you will be able to live, among others:

  • François Mitterrand's adventures with Ronald Reagan or Queen Elizabeth II;
  • The life of Jacques Chirac's  with John Major or Helmut Kohl;
  • Nicolas Sarkozy's stories with Carla Bruni, Ségolène Royal, George W. Bush or Barack Obama;
  • François Hollande's meetings with David Cameron, at the G8 summit or during the commemorations of the Normandy landings;
  • and to finish with, Emmanuel Macron's experience with Donald Trump, Theresa May or Boris Johnson.

As a bonus, you will also have the opportunity to experience life with Valéry Giscard d'Estaing in the weirdest farm ever,  a copycat of Margaret Thatcher's one called "Maggie's Farm".

Finally, 15 French (Plantu and others), Scottish, Spanish and Syrian cartoonists have drawn an original cartoon to pay tribute to Steve Bell in the context of this exhibition…      

Really enjoyable.

The "Bell Brochette" exhibition has already been shown during the 39th Salon de la Caricature, du Dessin de Presse et d'Humour, in St-Just-le-Martel, near Limoges, from 26 September to 4 October 2020.

There has been a prestigious guest who agreed to stand by his lookalike drawn by Steve Bell…
