Description

LES SCHTROUMPFS
LES SCHTROUMPFS NOIRS
Encre de Chine pour la planche 14 de cette histoire, première histoire de l’album éponyme, 1er album de la série, publié en 1963 aux éditions Dupuis.
Format : 43,6 x 31,9 cm. Encadrée.

Estimation : 40 000 - 60 000 €

Exceptionnel passage de cette histoire où après de nombreux essais, le Grand Schtroumpf parvient à trouver un antidote dans le pollen de Tubéreuse, permettant de ramener les Schtroumpfs Noirs à leur couleur et à leur caractère initial. Cette planche est marquée par une insoutenable tension dramatique dans les deux premiers strips, par un dénouement heureux dans les deux suivants avant de se terminer sur une touche d’humour bienvenue. Le Schtroumpf tenant un coquelicot dans la
dernière case servira d’inspiration à Pierre Culliford pour la couverture de l’album.
De nombreuses personnes se sont interrogées sur la couleur « noire » choisie par Peyo pour les Schtroumpfs du même nom. Les Studios Hanna-Barbera les feront violets « The Purple Smurfs », pour des questions raciales, afin qu’ils ne puissent en aucun cas être identifiés ou assimilés à la communauté noire. Le choix de la couleur noire était tout simplement une évidence graphique. C’était la seule solution pour Peyo, qui n’a jamais travaillé ses planches en couleur, de pouvoir rendre directementlisible et de marquer clairement l’opposition entre les Schtroumpfs piqués par la mouche
« Bzz » et les autres. Sans cela, les planches de cette aventure n’auraient pas eu cette lisibilité immédiate opposant le « blanc » des Schtroumpfs au noir des Schtroumpfs Noirs.


THE SMURFS
THE BLACK SMURFS (THE PURPLE SMURFS)
Indian ink on paper, plate 14. Dupuis Publishing, 1963. 17,2 x 12,6 in.

Estimation : 40 000 - 60 000 €

This is an exceptional extract from this story where, after many attempts, Papa Smurf manages to find an antidote from pollen of the tuberose, allowing the Black Smurfs to regain their original colour and character. This strip is marked by the unbearable drama, in the first two phases, which eventually leads to a happy ending in the final two, prior to ending with a much welcome dose of humour. The Smurf holding a poppy in the final panel would serve as inspiration to Pierre Culliford for design of the album cover.
Many questions were asked about why “black” was used by Peyo for the colour of the Smurfs’ skin in the album of the same name. Hanna- Barbera Studios would instead change this to purple, in “The Purple Smurfs”, for racial reasons, so that the Smurfs may not be identified or assimilated with the black community. The choice of the colour black was quite simply for graphical reasons. It was the only solution available to Peyo, who had never illustrated in colour, and so had only this choice in clearly and legibly marking the contrast between the Smurfs who were stung by the “Bzz” fly and the others. Without this, the illustrations in this adventure would not have had this immediate legibility contrasting the “white” of Smurfs with the black of the Black Smurfs.
