Hugo Pratt, horizon lines

Temporary exhibition from April 7, 2018 to March 24, 2019

Embark on a world tour and take a trip through the universe of Hugo Pratt.

This artist has made a huge impression on the comic and graphic novel world, notably through the creation of Corto Maltese, romantic seafaring adventurer and the perfect incarnation of the anti-hero. Much like Corto, Hugo lived a life full of intensity. His voyages, his encounters and the literature he read all fuelled his representations of far off horizons. From the “Great North” to the “Great Ocean”, his graphic literature, a window unto the world, resonates within this exhibition alongside the collections of items that inspired him.


Based on an original concept developed by Cong and the Musée des Confluences.
In partnership with Arte, France Culture, Le Figaro magazine et France 3 Auvergne Rhône Alpes.
