Pierre Joubert (June 27, 1910 - January 13, 2002) was a Frenchmarker illustrator. He was closely associated with the creation of Scouting and the popular look of Boy Scouts in France and Belgiummarker, comparable to the American artist Norman Rockwell.


Pierre Joubert was born in Parismarker. Joubert was a young Scout himself, and attended the École des arts appliqués in Paris. His first amateur drawings appeared in Scouts de France in 1926. He graduated to the magazine L'Illustration in 1927 through 1934, but continued increasingly to focus on Scout-centered art in Scouting publications.

Joubert also was an illustrator of boys' adventure novels, particularly the Signe de Piste (Trail Sign) line (where he works with René Follet). The style of Joubert's illustrations depicted idealized boys experiencing the glories of Scouting and kammaradeschaft. Joubert is considered, owing to his eye for trend and his mass-market exposure, to have had reflective influence on boy-culture in France from the 1930s until the close of the 1960s.

Joubert has had his controversial side; in the 1940s, the Nazis banned all French Scouting but through Vichy; thus, Joubert worked with Vichy and has been tarred with "collaboration." He also did work for some right-wing Catholic journals and, as with any artist, the particulars of his patrons have been imputed to him. Not long before his death, Joubert produced a large volume of memoirs and reprinted art, Souvenirs en vrac. He died in La Rochellemarker at age 91.
