(Relaxnews) – An art exhibition and retrospective devoted to the work of Tim Burton is on display in Paris after touring to Los Angeles, Melbourne and Toronto. The show looks at Burton’s work as a director of animated and live-action films as well as his creations in the fields of art, illustration and photography. On display are nearly 500 sketches, many of which have served as the starting point for his films, as well as photos, props, sculptures and film excerpts. The exhibition runs through August 5 at Paris’s Cinémathèque.
