Paris 2017: Cimetière du Montparnasse: #6: Gérard Lauzier

Gérard Lauzier (1932–2008) was a cartoonist, a playwright and a film director. His early cartoons are noted for their satire on certain groups of people, particularly those he regarded as hypocrites and power seekers. He turned to the theatre and cinema in the 1980s, but against all expectation returned to cartoons in the 1990s. His character Michel Choupon, a disillusioned adolescent, is perhaps his most noted creation.
