By

June 28, 2022
–・Sep 17, 2022–Nov 20, 2022・Tokyo City View 6-10-1 Roppongi, Minato-ku

Riyoko Ikeda’s The Rose of Versailles was serialized from April 1972 to December 1973 in the girls’ manga magazine Margaret, published by Shueisha Co. The epic historical drama set against the backdrop of the French Revolution overturned the common perception at the time that historical stories were not appropriate for girls’ manga. The series was a huge hit, winning the hearts of girls from the start. It became so popular that it received tens of thousands of fan letters per month, and became an immortal masterpiece that changed the history of shojo manga.

This exhibition focuses on Marie Antoinette and Oscar in particular, along with rare original drawings from the time. In this exhibition, visitors will be able to see how Ikeda’s brushstrokes changed as she reflected on the emotions of the characters.
