Jump into the fantasy world created by Schuiten and learn all the secrets of his creation process. In Brussels, from 16/01 to 19/04/14!

The Bibliotheca Wittockiana has been entrusted with the entirety of the Fonds Schuiten. It will make the most of the opportunity to pay homage to the artist's work, with an exclusive exhibition!

Comic book illustrator, François Schuiten, is one of Belgium's most famous illustrators.

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of François Schuiten's most famous work, "Cités Obscures" (published as Cities of the Fantastic in English), the artist decided to give the Roi Baudouin Foundation the original drawings and blueprints for certain volumes of this series that is so profoundly linked to Belgium.

What's more, he also gave the preparatory documents for the volumes that he completed along with his brother Luc and his old teacher Claude Renard.

This is how the Bibliotheca Wittockiana has come to manage the entirety of the Fonds Schuiten...
