Briclot and Banyai on Exhibition

 There's an exhibition of the work of French fantasy artist Aleksi Briclot called "Genèse: des croquis à l’œuvre" ("Genesis: From Sketches to Masterpiece,") at the Maison d' Ailleurs, in Yverdon, Switzerland through August 25. The show focuses on the growth and development of Briclot's images through various techniques.

And opening today at the Norman Rockwell Museum in Stockbridge, Massachusetts is "Istvan Banyai: Stranger in a Strange Land." Hungarian-born Banyai's illustrations have appeared in The New Yorker, Atlantic Monthly, Playboy, Rolling Stone, Mother Jones, The New York Times,  and many other publications. The Banyai exhibition continues through May 5.

Hello Mr Gurney, cheers from New Zealand.
I think you did a little mistake in the translation of "Génèse, des croquis à a l'oeuvre" instead of "Sketches at work", the french sentences means/ "From sketches to masterpiece" which makes more sense.
The french language can be very tricky sometimes (it's my native language!) as english can be for me in some cases
Again, thank you so much for sharing your experience and information, and of course your awesome work (I often ask to my students to read your blog, as a reference)
All the best

Thank you, Christophe, you are very kind. I made the change in the post. I had a feeling that "Google Translate" was incorrect, and as you know, I have no French at all.
