Fernand Léger

Painting in Space
“The goal should be an understanding by all three parties: the wall, the architect and the painter”, observed the French artist Fernand Léger (1881–1955) in 1933. His projects reveal a willingness to try out new things and demonstrate his striving to extend painting beyond the boundaries of the easel and to integrate it into the social, everyday space. They shed new light on one of the influential artists of the twentieth century.
