Vis-à-vis. Fernand Léger and his friends #3

At the Musée Fernand Léger in Biot

ActualitéDu 1er juin au 23 septembre

After the great success of the two previous editions in 2017 and 2018, we are pleased to announce the third and final show “Vis-à-vis, Fernand Léger and his friends. Part 3”. Focused on creative friendship and collaboration, this cycle of exhibitions puts together two artworks : one piece from the museum’s collections next to one made by another artist, painter or sculptor, with whom Fernand Léger (1881-1955) became friends or developed artistic relationships during his career.

In 2019, the edition of “Vis-à-vis, Fernand Léger and his friends. Part 3’’ explores two classical subjects in art history : on the one hand, the representation of the human figure and on the other, the landscape to show how they were revisited by modern artists. Fernand Léger took part in several art movements throughout his life : he painted as a Neo-Impressionist at first, then joined the Cubist movement, then Purism and many others. It reveals how creative Fernand Léger was. This attitude inspired others artists and still today Léger continues to be a source of inspiration for contemporary artists.
