Léon Coupey: My Dearest Kate
LÉON COUPEY: MY DEAREST KATE is the slender catalogue to the recent exhibition at the West Vancouver Art Museum. It showcases a collection of charming postcards, hand-drawn and embellished by Léon Maurice Coupey (1864-1925), most of them addressed to Kate Barlow Hunt Coupey (1873-1943) in London and Paris during their courtship and the early years of their marriage. As the WVAM’s Hilary Letwin writes, the cards present a snapshot not only of Kate and Léon’s relationship but also of “Europe at the turn of the 20th century.” With essays by London-based writer Guy Atkins and the show’s guest curator, West Vancouver artist Pierre Coupey.
