Léon Coupey: My Dearest Kate
Curator, Hilary Letwin
West Vancouver Art Museum
West Vancouver
January  - March  2022
Catalogue

This was the first major exhibition of the extraordinary postcards my grandfather, Léon Coupey, sent from Paris to his beloved Kate, my grandmother, in London and Paris, between 1902 and 1912. Mostly hidden from view within our family for over 100 years, these postcards were made by Léon for Kate at the turn of the century, during the Edwardian Era in England and La Belle Epoque in France. They constitute a family legacy, an aesthetic legacy, and a testament to their love.

A full colour catalogue with texts by Hilary Letwin, Guy Atkins, and Pierre Coupey, is available from the West Vancouver Art Museum.
