Jean Delpech. War work. Drawings and engravings from the Musée de l'Armée - Exhibition catalogue
The war work of Jean Delpech (1916-1988) is atypical. His drawings and prints on the theme of the Second World War show his original view of this ambiguous and troubled period. Thanks to a gift from the artist in 1972, supplemented by an acquisition from his family in 2019, the Musée de l'Armée holds more than eight hundred works by Jean Delpech in its graphic arts collection, tracing his career from his military service in the 15th Battalion of Alpine Chasseurs, where he was mobilised in September 1939, to the German campaign of 1945, as a war correspondent for the 1st Army.
This book invites you to discover an erudite artist, who defines himself as an "ethnographer", and to enter his abundant works with multiple universes, referring as much to comics as to science fiction.
The present work is published in a limited edition of 50 copies with an original engraving by Érik Demazières, printed by Bérangère Lipreau of the René Tazé workshop.
This book was supported by the Getty Foundation through the programme "The Paper Project".
This monographic work is published in the context of the exhibition presented by the Musée de l'Armée Paris, from 17 September 2022 to 3 January 2023, in the Second World War/Twentieth Century rooms.
