Murder Set BREAKING THE TEN  

GUARDIANS OF THE LOUVRE

 

The Louvre Collection:
GUARDIANS OF THE LOUVRE
Jirô Taniguchi

Acclaimed manga artist Jiro Taniguchi provides the latest entry in the
Louvre collection of graphic novels. After a group trip to Europe, a
Japanese artist stops in Paris alone, intent on visiting the museums of the
capital. But, bedridden in his hotel room with fever, he faces the absolute
solitude of one suffering in a foreign land, deprived of any immediate or
familiar recourse. When the fever breaks somewhat, he sets out on his visit
and promptly gets lost in the crowded halls of the Louvre. Very soon, he
discovers many unsuspected facets to this world in a museum in a journey
oscillating between feverish hallucination and reality, actually able to
speak with famous painters from various periods of history, led to
crossroads between human and personal history by... the Guardians of the
Louvre.
"Taniguchi's entry in this long-running series of graphic novels commissioned by the Louvre veers between fantasy and introspection to explore the meaning of art in our lives." -Publishers Weekly Top Ten Graphic Novel for Spring '16
"Caught my eye."
-Brigid Alverson, Robot 6, Comic Book Resources
