George Montbard II: Master of the Multipanel

From the early Eighties on George Montbard became mainly known for his illustrated travelogues from the Greater Maghreb. But he was also a wanted editorial illustrator, who managed to translate the blurred photographs and rough sketches of his collagues into exciting and catchy graphics. He developed a very special mastery in the field of the multipanel-graphic or medley print, a genre , which became very popular in scrapbooks and illustrated magazins at that time. On the occasion of the Boer war and the rise of the New Imperialism he reverted after many years of political abstinence to his initial profession as a cartoonist and satirist writer.
