LEON KALOGEROPOULOS ( 1928-2002)
There is a distinct difference between the work Leon produced in the 1970s and after 1990. We commissioned Leon to paint for greeksinart in 1999. He produced for us over a period of about ten months thirty paintings one of which is the work we have in the shop here. Some of those paintings painted for us have sold at auction and mainly Sothebys and Bonhams for substantial sums of money!
