    100846 | FRANCE & GREAT BRITAIN. André François bronze Medal. Issued 1979 (75mm, 282.24 g, 12h). By Ronald Searle in Paris.

     

    Facing head of François, with stylized signature below / ANDRÉ FRANÇOIS, skeleton, with clock in place of skull, seated left, painting the face of a nude female with an arrow. Edge: «cornucopia» CU No 3/100.

     

    Gem Mint State. Pleasing red-brown surfaces, with incredibly high relief. An interesting, rare, and whimsical type.

     

    François, born in Hungary as André Farkas, was a famous French cartoonist who had a very stylized, modern approach to his art. Here, close friend and collaborator of Ronald Searle captures the whimsical—and somewhat bizarre—nature of the latter's art.
