The Adventures of Tintin
Created in 1929 by Georges Remi, also known by his pen name Hergé, the adventurous reporter Tintin and his famed quiff hairstyle is without any doubt Belgium’s most emblematic figure. Traveling around the world with his loyal canine companion Snowy, Tintin solves mysteries and stands up against injustice. Over the course of Tintin’s adventures, the reader is introduced to charismatic characters such as Captain Haddock, Thomson and Thompson, Professor Calculus, and the opera singer Castafiore. This particular mural represents a drawing from the album The Calculus Affair, published in 1956.
