    Yakari in Versailles
    Discover Derib's world from 21 October to 5 November 2017

    The son of a renowned painter, Claude de Ribaupierre, alias Derib, is lucky to grow up in a family where comics are well regarded. Leaving his native Switzerland for Brussels, he learned the profession of cartoonist in the prestigious studio Peyo and quickly published his work in magazines like Tintin, Spirou and Pilot. From the age of 22, he creates his fetish character, Yakari.

    Beginning in 1974, Derib creates a realistic vein, with Buddy Longway, an atypical western that portrays the life of a family of trappers in the Midwest. This very personal series allows him to share his love of horses, of which he is one of the best designers.
    Initiated by the City of Versailles in 2009 with the help of the agency Even BD, L'Expo BD pays tribute to one of the greatest signatures of the 9th art, staging its singularity and talent.

    André Juillard (2010), William Vance (2011), Philippe Francq (2012), Grzegorz Rosinski (2013), the Signature of the Lombard family and the City of Versailles an exhibition at Derib, creator of Yakari and Buddy Longway, from Saturday, October 21 to Sunday, November 5, 2017, at the Town Hall.
