COSEY JONATHAN The one who was (T.16), Le Lombard 2013 Original plate #52. India ink on paper 35 x 46 cm (13,78 x 18,11 in.) The one that was is undoubtedly one of the most touching and best constructed albums of the saga. Jonathan finds on a market a religious mainate - a bird living in India, able to reproduce the human voice - having belonged to a friend of youth. Our hero then decides to find her. This is the starting point of a story with many flashbacks, which leads to this panel where, once the quest is solved, the young people found abandon themselves without any constraint. Cosey's art is here at its peak, as much in the mastery of the narration, as in that of the line. He is one of those authors who, like Hugo Pratt, have perfectly known how to play with exoticism and the passing of time.
