THE GUARDIANS OF THE LOUVRE by Jiro Taniguchi

January 8, 2017

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 family 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 and led to crossroads between personal and human history by…the Guardians of the Louvre.
