Monstrous Landscapes - Léopold Chauveau


An atypical personality, Léopold Chauveau (1870-1940), parallel to his activity as a doctor embraced by family obligation, took refuge very early on in a strange artistic universe, as singular as it was original.
A sculptor, illustrator and author of books for adults and children, he was long forgotten by art history, before a donation from his grandson to the Musée d'Orsay in 2017 brought his name back into the limelight.
He began sculpting around 1905 and soon monsters became a leitmotif of his production, in both sculpture and drawing.

Alongside the exhibition catalogue, this book will focus on Léopold Chauveau's role as an illustrator. The introduction to this beautiful book is written by novelist and essayist Stéphane Audeguy.
