Arts exhibition – "Tendez l’oreille, les montres vous parlent"

An exhibition should normally be visible to the public in Paris now, one on an illustrator named Léopold Chauveau, who was also a doctor, a writer and a sculptor. On that occasion the museum asked a current French illustrator and writer for children, Claude Ponti, to write stories about Léopold Chauveau’s character and read a few of them, currently online.

If you want to learn more about those two French artists, have the opportunity to discover their creations and listen to those stories, then give a look at that article.
