First of all, Booklist says of this new book out now in our Louvre collection: “Virtuosically rendered by Liberge, who merges elegant clear-line figuration, expressionistic pastel coloration, and in the odd-hours sequences, superimposition effects, Bastien’s story powerfully expresses the irrepressible life of great art.” Comics Worth Reading adds, after a few reservations: “Yet I was left impressed […]
