Pierre Joubert

Pierre Joubert - Chefs D'oeuvre Tome 4 (detail)Just for comparison with the picture below, here's a detail from the cover of Chefs D'oeuvre Tome 4 by one of the greatest illustrators of children's books: Pierre Joubert (1910-2002). Look at the girl nervously taking the lead. Miss Indiana Jones? Like Norman Rockwell, Joubert also illustrated Scouts manuals. Click HERE and HERE for graphics comparing Joubert's style with Rockwell's. The title link takes you to some very early Joubert drawings (French text).
