UNESCO: United Nations Educational Scientific and Cultural Organization

The Organisation


Stop the culture smugglers
Since its creation, UNESCO has undertaken efforts towards the protection of cultural property against the threats of armed conflict, theft, clandestine excavations and illicit traffic. French graphic artist André François contributed to the Organization’s activities to check the illegal art trade by designing a poster aimed towards local populations, tourists and art dealers. François achieved fame with his striking cover drawings for The New Yorker and Punch, his illustrations well-known for their mastery of visual shorthand.
