Showcasing Mr Sax

From Fri 7 February to Wed 31 December  - Dinant – in the streets of the city

Adolphe Sax, a colourful and unpredictable individual, obsessively creative, was the subject of many caricatures during his lifetime.

The International Adolphe Sax Association is keen to connect two Belgian brand images: the saxophone and the comic strip. Thirty illustrators (comic-strip artists, caricaturists, and press cartoonists) have agreed to depict Adolphe Sax or his invention, bringing humour and a touch of poetry to the representation of his personality and achievements. If you would like to explore this gallery – the work of Baruti, Batem, Benoi, Cécile Bertrand, Yves Budin, Antonio Cossu, Jean Coulon, Johan De Moor, Dehaes, Di Sano, DuBus, Franx, Geluck, Héméno, Jannin, Louis Joos, Kanar, Kroll, Laverdure, Moore, Rafagé, Raives, Saive, Serdu, Servais, Sondron, and Vadot – all you have to do is take a walk around the centre of Dinant, strolling from one shop window to another.
