Founder of Glénat publisher (publisher of Cosey’s Disney albums), Jacques Glénat, is also founder of a cultural foundation ‘Fonds Glénat Patrimoine + Culture’. It has its own exposition center in a former abby in Grenoble, the Couvent Sainte Cécile – where also the offices of the publisher are established.
Starting today (and until 14 march 2020), you can visit the exposition ‘Derrière la Montagne – La face cachée du tableau’ (Behind the Mountains – The hidden side of the painting’). In the exposition, you will see how 27 comic artists have re-interpreted 28 mountain landscape paintings. The result is an exposition of 28 diptyques.
Among the artists, Cosey – of course. Other comic artists whose work you will see: François Boucq, Jacques de Loustal, Christophe Chabouté and Nicolas Keramides (who made the drawing on the poster).
