• Born on March 1, 1934 in Uccle, on the outskirts of Brussels (Belgium), Jean-Michel Folon was first published in American magazines. In 1964, the Parisian bookstore Le Palimugre showed a few of his drawings. Numerous shows and retrospectives in prestigious art spaces around the world would follow. A voracious reader, he illustrated a great number of literary classics, including Jean de La Fontaine’s Fables, Kafka’s Metamorphosis, Ray Bradbury’s Martian Chronicles and the complete works of Jacques Prévert. He attended the opening of the Folon Foundation, not far from Brussels, in October 2000, and passed away in Monaco in 2005.
