This exhibition brings together more than fifty works by renowned artist Fernand Léger (1881–1955). Léger was enthralled by the vibrancy of modern life.  His paintings, murals, film and textiles were infused with the bustle and rhythm of the metropolis.

Léger drew on photography and new forms of communication that boomed during the ‘mechanical age’ of the twentieth-century such as typography, advertising and graphic design.

Léger’s work was heavily influenced by his surroundings and his experience of modern life. Included in the exhibition are his collaborations with architects Le Corbusier and Charlotte Perriand. Also on display is his experimental 1924 film, Ballet Mécanique.

This, the first major UK exhibition dedicated to Léger’s work in thirty years, celebrates the artist’s desire to make art part of everyday life. Not to be missed.
