peynet lovers

RAYMOND PEYNET was born in paris in 1908. he became quite famous around the world through his LOVERS or LES AMOUREUX, a young poet and his girlfriend. the images were reproduced on porcelain, scarves and as dolls, in books and everything else you can imagine in merchandise. GEORGES BRASSENS and CHARLES AZNAVOUR dedicated songs to the drawn characters. RAYMOND PEYNET died 90 years old in 1999. 1974 an animated feature film, produced in italy, was released – IL GIRO DEL MONDO DEGLI INNAMORATI DI PEYNET, ‘the travel around the world of the lovers created by peynet’. directed by CESARE PERFETTO, scenario by MANFREDO MANFREDI, music by ENNIO MORRICONE. the story of the film is more than uninteresting, animation very limited. but – there are a few backgrounds they are standing out, I recreated some of them…
