Description

“The Spirit of Will Eisner” exhibition takes you into the universe of one of the most famous American authors. Will Eisner, famous for his atypical superhero The Spirit, is also one of the great precursors of the graphic novel.


This retrospective is a tribute to Will Eisner (1917-2005), father of The Spirit and leading figure of the graphic novel medium. Already introduced at the Thomas Henry Museum of Fine Arts in Cherbourg-en-Cotentin (France) and at the PAFF! in Pordenone (Italy), this exhibition explores the spirit of Will Eisner through more than 150 original pages and drawings. These artworks trace the author’s 70-year career, his attachment to his hometown, New York, and his influence on contemporary authors.
