De Gaulle, by Wolinski

Georges Wolinski was born in 1934 in Tunisia. In 1946, his family moved to France, where he attended grammar and high school. In 1952, he went to Paris to study architecture, but he didn't finish his studies, and in 1960, he started contributing cartoons, illustrations and a series of comic strips to the satirical monthly Hara-Kiri. These comic strips were based on political or erotic themes: 'Ils Ne Pensent Qu' à Ça' ('They Only Think of One Thing'), 'Histoires Inventées' ('Invented Stories') and 'Hit-Parades'.

During the May 1968 student revolt, Wolinski co-founded one of the most mordant satirical magazines, L'Enragé (the Enraged). He also expressed his philosophy in the comic strip series 'Je Ne Veux Pas Mourir Idiot' (I Don't Want to Die an Idiot'). and 'Pas Que la Politique Dans la Vie' ('There is More to Life than Politics'). In 1977, Wolinski became an editorial cartoonist of the Communist daily L'Humanité. Wolinski's drawings can be found in the daily Libération, the weekly Paris-Match, L'Écho des Savanes and Charlie Hebdo.
