Product Description

Fernand Léger (PB)

Unique among the pioneers of modern art, Fernand Léger adopted the trappings of modernity as a primary subject of his work. This new addition to the MoMA Artist Series features ten paintings selected from The Museum of Modern Art’s substantial Léger collection. Together they trace the artist’s career, illustrating his early variations on Cubism, his postwar “mechanical” period, the influence of film on his approach to representation, and his later celebrations of “proletarian heroism.” An essay by Carolyn Lanchner, a former curator of painting and sculpture at the Museum, accompanies each work, illuminating its significance and placing it in its historical moment in the development of modern art.

This title is also available as an ebook, or from the iBookstore
