Fernand Léger and the Modern City
Location: The Philadelphia Museum of Art
Dates: October 2013 - January 2014
This exhibition is inspired by a single painting: Fernand Léger's 1919 The City, which marked an intense experimental period in his work that lasted through the mid-1920s. The exhibition features 100 of his works, which show how he redefined the medium of painting and pushed into theater, graphic design, and mural design. This exhibition is both for fans of Léger and anyone interested in the development of painting in the 1900s.
