Arsene Roisin

In her blog Not Dead Yet, Judith Taylor, an 80-year old retired PA from Hertfordshire (United Kingdom), consistently writes down things she would like to live on after she’s gone. In 2006 she wrote a short account on a romance she experienced with the French cartoonist Arsène Roisin, who sadly died when he was only 32.

It’s wonderful art and a wonderful account. It confronted me with my own prejudice that older people always were old, and never had a life of their own.

I would like to learn more about this artist Рthe only thing I could find was a listing of issues of the French weekly Le H̩risson to which he contributed in 1952.

    Chère Madame,
    Je suis né en 1940, et j’ai très bien connu Arsène ROISIN, qui s’est marié avec ma cousine Evelyne Bilewski et à eu 2 Filles
    Je possède encore un dessin qui m’a été destiné alors que je n’avais que 4 ans
    Dans mes souvenirs je remémore un garçon adorable et d’une extrême gentillesse.
    Il m’a aidé lors de mes études alors qu’il demeurai à Pont Ste Maxence et moiu avec mes grands Parents à Pontpoint
    Si vous désirez en savoir plus, n’hésitez pas à me contacter
    Je vous présente mes respectueuses salutations
    Jean-Michel COURTINES

  3. Glad to know I’ve rattled your prejudices a bit, that’s just what I’m about! Glad to know too that you found the young artist’s work worth showing. I must say that I am constantly surprised at the places and people that my blog reaches. I have to wonder how you found it in the first place.

That's my opinion. But do leave yours:
