Female Poster Artists. LEFOR-OPENO

Female Poster Artists. LEFOR-OPENO. While women were often the subjects of posters, not many women have been recognized as poster artists. Two of them were Marie Claire Lefort and Marie Francine Oppen

In the 1950s and 1960s, Marie Claire Lefort and Marie Francine Oppeneau produced a series of bold posters. The two women met in art school, and then studied together at the Ecole Paul Colin in Paris. They produced charming posters for the Loterie Nationale, Charles De Gaulle’s political campaign and other commissions under the pseudonym Lefor-Openo. Marie Lefort died in 1971 but her partner Marie Oppeneau opened a gallery in St. Cloud, France in 1980, and another art gallery in Paris in 1990 which she called called Lefor-Openo in honor of her friend and creative partner.
