Fernand Léger

Fernand Léger and Carolyn Lanchner
5.9 x 0.2 x 7.9 inches, 4.9 oz

Fernand Léger (1881–1955) is famed for his mechanical-tubular Cubism of the 1920s and for the Futurist-inspired film Ballet Mécanique, his collaboration with composer George Antheil. Léger incorporated elements from a wide range of modernist artistic movements, including Fauvism, Neoplasticism, Surrealism, Neoclassicism, and even Social Realism. This volume includes 35 color images; a commentary by Carolyn Lanchner, a former curator of painting and sculpture at MoMA, accompanies each work, elucidating its significance and its context.
