Fernand Leger

French, 1881-1955. Joseph Fernand Henri Leger is also Fernand Leger, was a prominent French sculptor, filmmaker and, painter. He is known for his contribution to Cubism. Léger invented idiosyncratic ways to portray three-dimensional objects in the pictorial form with artists like Georges Braque and Pablo Picasso. His compositions often involved opposing ideas between lines, curves, and colors. The artist usually set straight lines against curves and shades of gray against pure colors to create opposition. Fernand Leger was born in Argentan in France on February 4, 1881. Leger initially worked as an architect. Later during the 1900s, the artist moved to Paris and started working as an architectural draftsman. The artist studied arts at the Académie Julian and the École des Beaux-Arts. He was influenced by the style of Picasso, Braque, and Paul Cézanne. Fernand Leger, during 1905 created his signature form of Cubism called Tubism. It consisted of tubular shapes and also featured a mechanical image. He also modified Tubism to a highly populist and figurative style. In 1994 Fernand Leger also made an avant-garde film titled Ballet Mécanique. Today, Fernand Leger’s artwork is available at auction and on display in museums. Many auction houses also have Fernand Leger’s artwork for sale.
