Peynet Sketch of The Lovers

Raymond Peynet's cartoons of the lovers have achieved worldwide fame. A charming blue ballpoint pen sketch of the lovers done on the back of a postcard and inscribed to Gérard Lema has been available on eBay for at least ten months. The photograph on the postcard shows the bandstand in Valence where Peynet was first inspired to draw his famous characters back in 1942 and which is now named for them.
