“Two views of an artist”
Review of Musee Tomi Ungerer

As a retired children's librarian, I was familiar wit Ungerer's books for children and had seen the film about his erotic drawing, but the surprise here was the collection of his work as a child starting at 4 years old. My favorite was a drawing of the interior of a house during a bombing, with furniture falling and woman and cat running. The addition of the cat seemed to show a real artistic intellect even at such a young age. I was lucky in the timing of my visit, overhearing a lecture for a touring art class. Families with young children might want to skip the erotic drawings in the basement level.

Great museum of Tony Ungerer, his works are remembered by young and old as he illustrated children's books and satirical posters on the Vietnam War.

Put this on your list. Firstly because of the building and how it has been converted. The displays of the cartoonish are thought-provoking, sometimes scary and occasionally downright offensive - but in a Tom Lehrer way (if you know his genre you willo be bang on). Lots of Tomi's toy collection are in the Beaux Arts Museum in Rohan Palace

Even though you maybe not know Tomi Ungerer the museum is interesting and very well positioned and made. It is a modern one but the kids can enjoy it as well. In the "basement" there is a expo for adults as well. I would recommend it. It is small but not too small and offers a lot.

If you have a taste for skilful artistry and sharp satirical humour, don't miss this delectable little museum dedicated to the work of Strasbourg-born cartoonist Tomi Ungerer. His work for children is a delight, packed with quirky detail, and his more adult cartoons deliciously bawdy (though not for the easily shocked).
