WILLIAM VANCE RAMIRO Who are you, Visigoth ? (T.9), Dargaud 1989 Original cover. Signed. Acrylic on canvas 60 × 81.4 cm (23.62 × 32.05 in.) Some authors have a power of evocation that emerges with each drawing. William Vance is one of them. Sometimes a narrative power is also visible in each of the artist's representations: Vance also quickly joined this small, closed club. Finally, there are those who are able to make the reader interested in a subject that he would never have tackled without the experience of this reading. This is the case for the Ramiro series. Frankly, who remembers, in the history-geography class in high school, the evocation, even allusive, of Visigothic Spain? Maybe in the episode of Roland de Roncesvalles, and even then. But here, in one image, where the horseman emerges from the thickets, frightening a group of crested lapwings, we immediately wonder: Where is he going? Who is he running from? That's the magic of the great artists.
