“L’Affaire de l’Exposition” Winds Down

imageThis article gives a nice summary of how organizers have dealt with complaints that Herge's Tintin would not be represented at a cultural exhibit on the 175th anniversary of Belgium: accepting pieces for display from private collectors. For their part Le Fondation Herge, the caretaker of the estate of Tintin's creator, has issued a public statement reported on here that they never prohibited a display nor were agents hoping to block any representation of the famous character, they had only expressed dissatisfaction at what they exhibit had originally planned to show.
