From 3 April to 6 May 2012, Agnès b. and Plantu presented at the Agnès b. Galerie du Jour the cartoons of Le Monde published during 2012 French presidential campaign.
Following this exhibition, the auction of Plantu’s original cartoons on the benefit of Cartooning for Peace, organized in partnership with Le Monde, Piasa and the galerie du jour Agnès b. was a real success.
Piasa has auctioned 154 cartoons and 8 sculptures with the theme of French presidential elections from 1974 to 2012. On this occasion, the cartoon depicting François Hollande’s arrival at the Elysee Palace, hit the record price of 13,400 €.
Thank you all for this great auction, which will help us to organize more and more exhibitions and meetings all around the world!
