Leger Fernand

Born: 04/02/1881

Deceased: 17/10/1955

The painter and graphic artist Fernand Léger was born in Normandy. His works, mostly painted in strict, reduced forms and in a mostly geometrical order, are ascribed to Cubism. Intensity of the colours in comparison to the simplicity of the shapes characterise his style. Through his impressions as a soldier during the Great War he developed his mechanical period (“période méchanique”), in which people were displayed like technical objects. These works became world-famous. During his years in America he temporarily taught as a professor at Yale University. Posthumously his works were appreciated at three documenta exhibitions in Kassel.
