France-Amérique on Display: The Covers of Olivier Tallec

To mark the 75th anniversary of France-Amérique, the Maison Française at the Embassy of France in Washington, D.C., will host an exhibit featuring 19 of French artist Olivier Tallec’s original covers. A well-known illustrator in France, Tallec is adept in the art of humorous illustrations for adults, combining dark humor and the absurd in only a handful of brushstrokes. Since 2013, his off-the-wall style has been showcased on France-Amérique’s front covers — each one a powerful visual that evokes a greater message found within the magazine’s pages.

An opening reception will be held at the Maison Française on Friday, September 6, 2019, at 7 pm.
