Fernand Léger. La vie à bras-le-corps

Fernand Léger. La vie à bras-le-corps : Fernand Léger, La vie à bras le corps, Musée Soulages, Rodez, 2022   

The exhibition

Fernand Léger, mechanics of work and leisure

Léger at Soulages, it is like a return of elevator. Among the permanent collections of the museum dedicated to the painter of the Outrenoir, his ballet of frank colors stands out. A tribute to the legitimate transmission and sharing of experience, this exhibition in the form of a small retrospective is part of a cycle on the great moderns. Picasso, Calder and Le Corbusier, but also Yves Klein, then Chaissac and CoBrA: a procession that Benoît Decron, the museum's director, proudly continues with Fernand Léger (1881-1955), taking pride in having "passed through all the arcana of modernity".

Extract from the article by Erwin Orassibé published in the number 102 of the magazine Art Absolument, published on July 12, 2022.
