Fernand Léger

Herbert Palmer Gallery

At the Herbert Palmer Gallery there are a large group of color lithographs by Leger which are among the very last things he did before his death. Originally they were to illustrate a book he planned called La Ville, dedicated to Paris, and the work represented here covers the last years, from 1953 to 1955. Unfortunately Leger never lived to see these prints which were all stamped after his death and authenticated by his widow. The mood of the show is gay and nostalgic, and all the characteristics of Leger’s style are eminently on display.
