As part of the Birth of the Tramp celebrations in Bologna, there will be a special Léo Kouper exhibition from June 25th to July 5th, 2014.
Léo Kouper, pictured above in his artist’s studio in Saint-Ouen, is a French artist, renowned for his movie poster illustrations, notably those of Chaplin films. He painted his first Chaplin poster in the 1950s.
Alongside some of his most famous Chaplin posters, the exhibition will feature many ideas that never made it to the United Artists advertising department. Mr Kouper will be in attendance for a guided tour on Saturday, June 28th at 4:00 pm.
