Follet, René - Dessin original couleur - Le Plongeur au requin - (2013)
Very fine - 1 Original artwork - Format 24 x 31 cm.

A rare acrylic illustration by René Follet on loose sheet, with his technique of the time.

This illustration, iconic of FOLLET's work, features a tribute both to his book titled ‘Un gosse à abattre’ and at the same time to all the mastery of this genius of illustration compared to the ‘Movement’.

The picture does not capture all the beauty of this original illustration. The ink and colour work is truly impressive. One can feel all the power and stress of this diver thanks to the nervousness of the stroke.
