About the Item
Known for his bold forms, geometric contrasts, and enduring interest in the working class, French painter Fernand Léger has had a tremendous influence on cubism, constructivism, and the contemporary advertising poster. While inseparable from the legacies of other famed cubists, Léger truly defined his own aesthetic language through his depictions of machines and modern technology coupled with a vibrant use of color. With an introduction by renowned twentieth-century art scholar Kenneth E. Silver, this limited-edition volume, part of Assouline's Ultimate Collection, features a curated selection of his iconic pieces hand-glued to each page and displayed in exceptional fashion—for a lasting keepsake of Léger's extraordinary oeuvre.

This book comes with an exclusive and complimentary Assouline canvas tote bag.
