Fernand Leger: Paris-New York

Be the first to review this product

Fernand Leger (1881 1955), one of the twentieth-century's most important classic artists, was a great mediator: in his enthusiasm for the cool, mechanical side of modernity, he understood how to lend form to the emerging artistic style, which was also particularly appealing to an American audience. This richly illustrated publication covers the artist's entire oeuvre from the early, Cubist-influenced work to the cheerful, large-format canvases he painted later in his career. Special attention is given to the American dimension of Leger's work. The artist visited the US on several occasions, where between 1940 and 1945 he lived in exile in New York. He was deeply impressed by this vast country by its architecture, dynamics, and modernity and he consequently created some of his most important works there. Furthermore, this volume traces his remarkable influence on twentieth-century American artists, primarily on Roy Lichtenstein and Ellsworth Kelly, but also on others, such as Robert Rauschenberg, Al Held, Jasper Johns, James Rosenquist, Frank Stella, and Andy Warhol.
