Phantoms of the Louvre
Superstar European SF and Fantasy comics artist Enki Bilal revisits the Louvre in twenty-two portraits. He imagines 22 fates of men, women and children whose lives have been affected by a work of art. They haunt the halls of the Louvre. They are long dead, often violently. They are a Roman legionary, a muse, a painter, a German officer. Each, one day, met a painter or a sculptor and was their model. Bilal startlingly brings them back to life. Both a work of Fantasy and a masterful homage, this was presented in a special exhibition in the Louvre in early 2013.
