Kalogeropoulos arrived in Athens just after the fall of the junta of 1967-74 and the return of Democracy in Greece. Leon immediately produced marine art that was not much in demand but on the lines of the work of his father Nicos Kalogeropoulos. The work of the 1974-80 was in the same lines as the painting in our shop and distinct from the work produced after 1990.
