Now it's time to take a look at a brilliant stand-alone work from SuBLime as well as one of my favorite BL mangaka ever.
TABLEAU NUMERO 20 (Sakuhin Number 20), by est em. First published in 2009 and first published in North America in 2013.
An art conversator finds a lost masterpiece, a work previously only known to exist in the form of a sketch. For years, the man obsessed over that sketch and the haunting eyes of the man in it. Imagine his shock, then, when he brings the painting home to work on it and finds the subject standing naked on his balcony. The man in question, Yves, turns out to be the key to the mystery of the artist’s works, and alongside the conservator Yves learns to let go of his lost love. Alongside them are other stories, ones about frustrated flamenco dancers, of a couple separated by time and the loss of memory with age, and a man struggling with his unspoken love for an old friend.
