PATRICE PELLERIN THE SPRINGER Sink the Medusa! (T.9), Quadrants 2015 Original plate n°38 accompanied by its setting in colors with gouache on grey. Signed. India ink on paper 38.4 × 49 cm (15.12 × 19.29 in.) While crossing the Atlantic to Canada, Yann de Kermeur and his crew of La Méduse fly to the rescue of a French ship taken by the English Royal Oak. The ensuing naval battle is epic, colorful and allows Patrice Pellerin to express all his talent and know-how. From close-ups to general views, everything is there; the only thing missing is the soundtrack. Such a complex board requires a good ten days of relentless work. It is one of the most spectacular pages of the album. The difficulty here is to try to reconstruct the course of a naval battle, with alternating close-ups of the main actors and wide shots of the ships' maneuvers, while remaining as fluid and readable as possible so as not to lose the reader. P.P.
