Fernand Leger - The Couple

Artist: Fernand Henri Leger
Title: The Couple, 1955
Nationality: French
Medium: Lithograph
Dimensions:  26″ x 20″

This special cubist lithograph was one of the final lithographs Leger produced before his death in 1955. This work expresses his signature style with reductionist figures and primary colors overlapping them.  The scene depicts a couple sitting together with the female figure resting her hand on the shoulder of the man she adores while grasping a flowering plant in the other hand. The man appears content and relaxed on the left side of the image with stylish choice clothing.
