Fernand Léger

Fernand Léger (1881-1955) was a French artist who played a key role in he Modern avant-garde movement of Cubism.  Along with Picasso and Braque, he developed new ways of expressing three-dimensional space on a flat canvas and focused on color, shape, and  volume. During the late 1910s, he employed Synthetic Cubist elements, characterized by tubular forms and mechanical imagery that reflected the urban industrial landscape. Born in Argentan, France, he opened the Académie de l’Art Moderne with Amédée Ozenfan in 1924. He worked with a number of different media, such as paint, ceramic, print, large-scale murals, film, theater and dance sets, glass, and book arts.
