This exhibition brings together more than 50 works by the renowned painter, sculptor and filmmaker Fernand Léger (1881-1955).

Léger's paintings, murals, film and textiles are infused with the bustle and rhythm of modern life. He drew on photography and new forms of communication that boomed during the ‘mechanical age’ of the 20th century such as typography, advertising and graphic design.

His work was heavily influenced by his surroundings. 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 is the first major UK exhibition dedicated to Léger’s work in thirty years and celebrates the artist’s desire to make art part of everyday life.
