Mail Attachment-1The Louvre Collection: Phantoms of the Louvre
By Enki Bilal
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.

22 portraits for 5000 years of creation. 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 felt them, wandering the corridors of the Louvre, close to the work that tipped their life: Mona Lisa, the Victory of Samothrace, Christ reclining, an Egyptian mask.

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.

Mail AttachmentGLACIAL PERIOD
By Nicolas De Crecy

With this graphic novel, for the first time in the US, ComicsLit brings over the latest enfant terrible of European comics, a mad genius, and for the first time, The Louvre museum is involved in a co-edition of a series of graphic novels, each a vision of this great museum by a different artist.

De Crecy, at the sight of the incredible richness of the museum?s collection was overwhelmed and felt small and ignorant. The result is a story set thousands of years hence in a glacial period where all human history has been forgotten and a small group of archeologists fall upon the Louvre, buried in age-old snow. They cannot begin to explain all the artifacts they see. What could they have meant?

Their interpretations are nonsense, absurd, farcical.
