Beauty is everywhere

BOZAR in Brussels and the Centre Pompidou-Metz are devoting a major retrospective to one of modern art’s most famous artists. With around 100 works and a vast selection of archive documents, the retrospective covers every facet of the work and personality of Fernand Léger

Generous, curious about everything and a great traveller

The French artist Fernand Léger (1881 – 1955) is one of modern art’s most famous figures. Son of a farmer in Normandy, and initially training as an architect before becoming a painter, Léger developed his own vision of cubism after discovering Cézanne in the early years of the 20th century in Paris.
