Exhibit Hugo Pratt beyond Corto Maltese: from September 27th in Denmark

HUGO PRATT BEYOND CORTO MALTESE – From September 27th to August 2nd, 2020 at Brandts Museum

Madame Java – Les femmes de Corto Maltese.

Hugo Pratt in Denmark. From September 27th to August 2nd, 2020, for a total period of ten months, the Brandt’s Museum in Odense will display “Hugo Pratt – beyond Corto Maltese.” 

The twelve room exhibition retraces the main chapters of Hugo Pratt’s life, experiences, and artistic production. In it we find the Venice of his birthplace but also the site of some of Corto Maltese’s important adventures. In it we find the Africa of his childhood and adolescence, but also the setting of stories such as “the Scorpions of the Desert.” In it we find the Argentina of the 50s where his talent developed and the artistic coming of age of the greatest Italian comic artist took place. In it we find North America with its Native Americans, Ireland of the Celtics, the islands of the Pacific. The visitors will be able to follow in parallel, Pratt’s extraordinary life and the many lives of his characters. It will be an incredible journey within the real world and that of fantasy, both realms not necessarily being too far apart
