Lot 0024 Details

Description
FERNAND LEGER (1881-1955) Title: Untitled, Medium: Ink on Paper, Date: 1942, Size: 12" H x 9" W (in). With COA (Certificate of Attribution). Was a canonical French artist known for his contributions to Cubism. Along with Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque, Leger crafted unique ways of expressing three-dimensional objects in pictorial space. I organize the opposition between colors, lines, and curves, he said of painting. I set curves against straight lines, patches of color against plastic forms, pure colors against subtly nuanced shades of gray. Born on February 4, 1881 in Argentan, France, Leger apprenticed with an architect before moving to Paris in 1900, where he worked as an architectural draftsman. In Paris, while taking courses at the ecole des Beaux-Arts and the Academie Julian, he came under the influence of Paul Cezanne, Picasso, and Braque. Around 1905, the artist developed his hallmark style of tubular forms and mechanical imagery. During the 1920s, he created the film Ballet Mecanique(1924) and design murals for Le Corbusier Pavillon de L'esprit Nouveau(1925). By the end of World War II, Leger paintings had become increasingly abstract, with color transparencies floating amidst boldly drawn figures and objects, as seen in his Two Women Holding Flowers (1954). The artist died on August 17, 1955 in Gif-sur-Yvette, France. Today, his works are held in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art in New York, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Tate Gallery in London, the Centre Georges Pompidou in Paris, and the Albertina in Vienna. (Attributed to: Qualifier used for attributions to express minor to moderate uncertainty regarding the attribution to a known creator, as when the work is proven, style, or physical characteristics suggest to given creator, but the attribution can not be validated with absolute certainty (eg, attributed to Frans Hals (Dutch painter, ca. 1581-1666)).
