Marvel super-hero art in Paris is a must for comic fans
Published on 27 April 2014, dans Exhibition and Museums
Marvel super-hero art in Paris at the new Art Ludique Museum until August 22 is a unique opportunity to see the artwork behind the original Marvel comics and the latest films, all an easy journey from your hosts in the Latin Quarter at Hotel Royal Cardinal.
Marvel super-hero art in Paris is in a fabulous setting
Art Ludique is the newest of the French capital's museums, in the redeveloped former docks area of Paris, and it's dedicated to the art of comics, video games, manga and animation. This latest show, 'The Art of the Marvel Superheroes', is a real blockbuster that will wow the whole family.
From Captain America and Thor to the Incredible Hulk, Iron Man and The Avengers, you'll see the original printers' plates featuring the work of legendary creators such as Jack Kirby, Steve Ditko and Stan Lee. The show also brings you right up to date with more than 200 artworks from the latest Marvel Studios films, which have been worldwide blockbusters. There are storyboards, pre-production paintings and even the original designs for vehicles used in the final films.
'The Art of Marvel Superheroes' is more than an exhibition about comics. It tells us that the people behind these characters were artists in their own right - and as you walk around the displays, and enjoy the videos, you'll begin to understand that these are masterpieces of our time.
We love our super-heros here at Hotel Royal Cardinal - and Art Ludique is a beautiful 25 minute walk, through the gardens of the National Museum of Natural History, from our hotel in the heart of the Latin Quarter.
