comics and contemporary art
Trésors de la bande dessinée et art contemporain
Little Nemo, Yellow Kid, Tintin, Blake and Mortimer, Mickey Mouse, Super-Man, Asterix, Iznogoud, Blueberry, Astro Boy, Le Chat… Brought to life by some of the most talented comic-book authors, these characters and superheroes have done more than captivate millions of readers worldwide; they have fired the imagination of major artists of our times, such as Roy Lichtenstein, Erró, Takashi Murakami, Wim Delvoye and Gilles Barbier. This catalogue recounts the 2009 exhibition at La maison rouge. Original panels, including many rare or famous examples of comic-book art, are shown side-by-side with the contemporary works they inspired.
