By Jean-Michel Folon
Category: Sculpture


Among the themes that run through Folon’s work are the alienation of modern man in a world of new technology and the magical power of imagination. He was best known for his illustrations of Everyman depicted as a man dressed in a raincoat with a brimmed hat and a blank face. In Voyage, Everyman sits in a boat opposite a sleeping cat. It is impossible to tell which direction the boat is traveling. Everyman is about to embark on a voyage, but he is not the one rowing the boat.
