French painter Joseph Fernand Henri Léger (1881 –1955) explored almost every field of artistic endeavour, from advertising and cinema to graphic design and theatre.
His style evolved from a personal form of cubism into a more figurative style. He is regarded as a forerunner of pop art.
We remember here the exhibition presented by Museo Correr in Venice, A vision of a contemporary city, with more than 60 artwork by Léger.
