31 March 1989
Philippe Bertrand is mostly known today for his beautiful erotic work.
Bertrand's self-termed "nouvelle manière" was a new and colorful style of drawing and composition in which he created an aesthetic atmosphere that toned down the eroticism in his work.
His first work in this style was the erotic 'Scènes d'Intérieur' portfolio and the 'Linda Aime l'Art' series, published in Pilote. An animated series of 'Linda', written by Bertrand, aired on Canal+ under the title 'Dix-neuf'.
Bertrand, now famous for this style, has been asked to do artwork for various projects beyond the world of comics, doing various magazine illustrations and backgrounds for movies and plays.
