Pratt in colour


Pratt was one of the teachers in the art school I attended. I sat next to the original of the picture below for one year. I was fascinated by the lady's pubic hair.

Hugo Pratt is wonderful. I only just became aware of his work on a trip to Italy a few years ago when I saw one of his great Corto Maltese collections in a train station bookstore. I kick myself for not buying it to this day.

I'm always amazed at the multitude of amazingly talented and successful foreign artists who remain virtually unknown to us Americans to this day. But at least we have people like you Oscar to share examples of this great work here on your blog.

I think that there is an American edtion of Corto Maltese by Pratt...Check around.
Pratt was often asked to sell the rights of Corto Maltese to Hollywood, and he said that he would only sell it if they've got Young Burt Lancaster to act the Corto's part. At that time, Lancaster was already dead.

Hugo es narración dibujada sin necesidad de palabras, el trazo
limpio y exacto transportaba a cada lugar donde transcurrian sus historias, y los gestos de sus personajes describian personalidades sin necesitar conocerlos en profundidad.
Un verdadero fuera de serie, es más no sabía pero mucha gente se viene acá de viaje, lo hace por conocer más de la epoca de Pratt en Argentina, y de otros mostros que han dejado huella en la historieta mundial.

Hola Oscar, estudiaste en la Escuela Panamericna de Arte ? Me interesaría hacerte un reportaje al respecto. Con otro amigo estasmos entrevistando a gente que haya estudiado allí, en especial con Pratt o Breccia. Ya estuvimos con CArlos Buttafuocco, Osvaldo Torta,Leo Durañona, Walther Fahrer y José Muñoz entre otros! Saludos, Gustavo Ferrari
