Jean de Brunhof

Biography

Babar the elephant was created by French author Jean de Brunhoff, based on a story that his wife Cecile made up for their children. Babar first appeared in 1931 in a book called’ L’Histoire de Babar ‘ about a young aristocratic elephant who left his home in the jungle to live in the big city. Jean de Brunhof published six more stories including ‘Le Voyage de Babar’ and ‘Babar et Les Ballons’ before his death in 1937 at the age of 37. Jean’s work was continued by his son, Laurent de Brunhoff. There is a set of mini prints (240x300mm) and poster size images (600x800mm).
