Fernand Leger (1881-1955) is famed for his mechanical-tubular Cubism of the 1920s and for the Futurist-inspired film Ballet Mecanique, his collaboration with composer George Antheil. Leger 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.
