Léon Maurice Henri Coupey
Fifteen postcards, 1864-1925
Ink, graphite, crayon on card, 15.24 x 8.89 cm approx. each

Please join us for an afternoon of participatory art making in the gallery. Kids of all ages are invited to create their own postcards inspired by historic works by the artist and calligrapher Léon Maurice Coupey (1864-1925) on view in the exhibition Person/ne. Coupey’s highly detailed and inventive postcards document his travels and intimate relationships, and demonstrate his imaginative and original re-fashioning of the classic postcard format. This event is free and open to all.
