Art in the comic is an exhibition in which some of the leading illustrators and cartoonists demonstrate their passion for the history of painting. The exhibition will present iconic works from the history of art as interpreted by numerous cartoonists, initiatives by museums based around comics and an initiative of the Telefónica Foundation aimed at reinterpreting its artistic collection in vignettes.
The exhibition brings together work from the masters of European comics such as Milo Manara, Enki Bilal, Catherine Meurisse, David Prudhomme, Bernard Yslaire and Marc-Antoine Mathieu. It also includes a broader group of Spanish artists such as Santiago García, Javier Olivares, Ana Galvañ, Mamen Moreu, Miguel Gallardo, Sergio Bleda, Paco Roca, Rubén Pellejero, Juan Díaz Canales, Enrique Ventura, Joan Boix, Fidel Martínez, Brais Rodríguez and Malagón, amongst many others. Together with all of them, there are also American authors including Juan Giménez, Arthur Suydam, Jorge Zentner and Patricio Clarey.
