Meet Tarzan in Paris

Who doesn’t know Tarzan? The hero created by Edgar Rice Burroughs in 1912, when the very first book was published became a literary phenomenon of the 20th century having appeared in comic strips, radio programs, television series and films. The character, who features in many media such as posters, figurines, CDs and even games, continues to fascinate and fuel our vision of an imaginary, fantasy Africa. See how and why in the exhibition Tarzan! or Rousseau and the Waziri at ParisMusée du Quai Branly, until September 27.
