The exhibition Tintin at sea AT in Stockholm

News ~ Wednesday 30th May 2007

The National Maritime Museum in Stockholm will present the exhibition Tintin at Sea from 26 May 2007 till 2 March 2008. The National Maritime Museum is the central institution of Swedish collections relating to merchant shipping, shipbuilding and naval defence. The aim of the exhibition is to show the extensive range of Hergé’s lifetime’s work as an artist, his working methods and Tintin’s relationship to seafaring and maritime history. Hergé found inspiration for several albums from ships, shipping and maritime environments.

Documents from Hergé’s archive show how each album was preceded by painstaking research in order to achieve realism. The exhibition will also display items from the National Maritime Museum’s collection, similar to the ones that appear in the albums. Maritime concepts and events will be explained, providing visitors with information on ships, shipping and maritime history from a new perspective – through the adventures of Tintin.
