Original illustration for the 4th cover of the calendar Guides and Scouts of Europe of 1972. Signed. Gouache on paper
28.5 × 44.5 cm (11.22 × 17.52 in.)
The vigil is an essential activity of the scout camp and Joubert regularly illustrated it throughout his career. So how do you renew yourself? By creating a perfectly legible composition: the play in the foreground, followed by the troop of guides in the background, all overlooked by the moon. Then, the shimmering colors of the theater costumes contrast with the blue of the uniforms. To finalize the whole, the fire is discreet but it is the glow of its flames that actually illuminates the scene. A master stroke!
