It is said he brought the « power of the imagination to Europe ». Mainly thanks to his illustrations… Gustave Doré has illuminated a big part of the 19th century with black, verve and humour! Discover the « Doré » way of life thanks to the beautiful exhibition the Musée d'Orsay dedicated to him until June 5.
It is true that the Musée d'Orsay is a cult place for all those who love 19th century art in Paris. The former train station revisited as a museum was the ideal place to present this big exhibition about Gustave Doré (1832-1883), mainly celebrated for his incredible etchings of the works of Dante, Rabelais, Hugo or Balzac.
Original or imaginary. This time, in stead of just stopping at the illustrations that may have made the French artist famous, the exhibition meticulously reveals all the other sides of his work and his talents. From drawing to painting, from watercolour to sculpture. Often original or imaginary, the inspiration of Doré is expressed in all ranges of emotion!
Putting on tights, wearing a cape with your initials, a masque… A couple of things that seem difficult to realise at work… Except for the superheroes and supervillians of the Marvel Comics made in America. A Parisian exhibition pays tribute to the art of illustrating the powers of Hulk, Spider-Man and other Silver Surfers. To be visited at the musée des Arts Ludiques until August 31.
During your stay at the Opéra Cadet, you can meet with (graphical) icons! They’ve come from far away during your childhood and highlight the creative originality of major Marvel authors like Stan Lee, Joe Simon, Don Heck or Neal Adams…
Get into my comic book! It mustn’t have been easy to invent a way to illustrate the super powers of Iron Man, Captain America, Batman, Spider-Man etc. Along the 300 odd original drawing boards from the mythical publications, the Great Art of Marvel Superheroes shows a complete aesthetical collection at the service of a very original fiction! http://artludique.com/marvel.html
