About Rohan au Louvre

Before Ultra Jump published the manga on March 19, 2010, The Louvre Invites The Comics exhibit displayed Hirohiko Araki’s Rohan au Lovure at the Louvre Museum from January 22 to April 13, 2009.

The Louvre offered Araki to draw a manga to feature in their “bande dessinée” collection, making it the first manga published by Musée du Louvre Editions. Moreover, the manga is Araki’s first full-color work. Bande dessinée refers to Franco-Belgian comics and the term is also called the “ninth art” (the other arts include architecture, sculpture, painting, etc.).
