The French awarded Ronald Searle the Chevalier de la Légion d’honneur, the highest honour of the French state, usually reserved for French nationals only… while the English establishment treated the country’s greatest graphic artist much less generously…
Not that he probably cared. Still, it’s kinda revealing, n’est-ce pas?
Anyway, in my book, he’s up there with Goya. Would so loved to have had his take on all the latest crazy educational offerings from Michael Gove.
