Matthew Screech

University Press of Mississippi

This essay reconsiders the fundamental theorization of clear line provided decades ago by Bruno Lecigne, ranging across examples from Hergé’s contemporaries to artists working today. The chapter centers its theory of clear line on the relationship between art and the real, discarding Lecigne’s hierarchy of styles and opening up the legacy of Hergé for a wider variety of approaches.

Keywords:   Hergé, Tintin, Bruno Lecigne, Clear line, Aesthetics
