Guardians of the Louvre

Guardians of the Louvre by Jiro Taniguchi  136 pp.

This was reviewed by Patrick a few months ago and pretty much says it all. A young Japanese artist tours the Louvre and learns of the "Guardians" of the museum. The Winged Victory of Samothrace (with a head) teaches him about the art, artists, and history of the famous museum. He has face to face encounters with famous artists. What is left unsaid is whether the supernatural encounters are real or the result of the fever he suffered. The artwork is beautiful and the story intriguing.
