The "big-eyed waifs" craze started by American Margaret Keane in the 1950s found its French counterpart in Michel Thomas a decade later. Thomas was a pseudonym for Stanislas Pozar, born in Zagreb, Croatia, in 1937. A political refugee in France, he trained at the Beaux-Arts in Paris. His work never graced any galleries and he died in 2014, relatively unknown. However, Parisians who grew up with his art have worked to give hommage to Thomas through fan pages and books. In French vernacular, his kids were known as "poulbots," poor kids who roamed the Montmartre area. That's why you'll see Sacre Coeur in the background of many of his illustrations. However, in this one, it's the Iron Lady!
