Fernand Leger (1881-1955) is one of the 20th century's most influential painters.
He was associated with the Cubist movement, although he disagreed with the analytical method of the Cubists and supported the Section d'Or group's emphasis on movement and colour.
This interest can be seen in Leger's early work while his later art focuses on industrial objects and landscapes. This volume presents a collection of Fernand Leger's most influential work - from the sharp draughtsmanship of his early years, to the aggressive, unidealized industrial forms of his later work.
The text outlines the progression of the artist's career and assesses his impact on the history of modern art.
