Raoul Servais’s ground-breaking work paved the way for the development of animated film in Belgium.
Raoul Servais is a consummate artist, whose inventiveness and technical research are inextricably linked. Throughout his career, he has searched for the technology best suited to representing his ideas as faithfully as possible and, more importantly, capturing a specific atmosphere.
With this book the King Baudouin Foundation wishes to express its profound gratitude to Raoul Servais for entrusting his graphic work to the Foundation.
