JEAN-JACQUES SEMPÉ Original illustration. Signed. India ink and wash on paper 39.7 × 47 cm (15.63 × 18.5 in.) "I have always been a very good observer, wrote Goscinny.

"In fact, with its long focal lengths and and his characters crushed by the scenery, Sempé brings to his primary condition, while allowing us to enter into the to enter into the confidence of his characters. We see it here here, where Sempé plays with the contrast in the inking of a lover disappointed at not being a character and that of the woman writer who, upstairs, has the power to give him a destiny. Goscinny was not mistaken: Sempé is a genius.
