Description

This impressive new exhibition catalog features an all-new look at the master of French comics and fantasy art. A large, handsome hardcover packed with reproductions from original artwork and paintings, and essays on the themes of time and archeology. Based on an exhibit at the National Archaeological Museum of Naples (MANN) from July 10 to October 4, 2021. There is a lot of artwork in this Italian catalogue not included the Max Ernst catalogue–or the earlier Cartier Fondation catalogue! And if you don’t have the Italian catalogs Moebius: Visioni di Fine Millennio (1997) or Infinito (1998), then there are even more works you will have never seen before!

Here are his best known works: The Major, Arzak, the World of Edena, the Fauna of Mars and Inside Moebius, but also Greek Myths, Time and Matter, Casanova, Celtic Venice, Dante’s Paradise…

Highlights of Moebius – La Ricerca del Tempo / à la Recherche du Temps:

– A number of rarely seen Venice and Naples related artworks
– The entire 27-panel story “Mourir et Voir Naples” (albeit in two pages)
– The entire 4-page story “Voir Naples”
– Drawings and illustrations of Casanova
– A suite of 8 paintings of Greek mythology (never before published in a book)
– A suite of crystal illustrations (never before published in a book)
– Moebius’ illustrations for Dante’s Paradiso (never published outside of the Nuage Edizioni
illustrated edition)

The catalog is nicely printed on an uncoated stock. The text is in Italian and French.

This is the largest exhibition of Moebius art ever mounted in Italy. It celebrates not only the art of Moebius, but also his particular bond with Italy and Naples, and will not be available from more than a handful of dealers in the U.S. and availability could be limited.
