Historical Description

Utilizing a bold color palette of purple, yellow, red, and black, Léger creates an abstract work in which shapes and forms create a constructive unit. We detect hints of a road, a ladder, and a building, all of which appear geometric and slightly topsy-turvy. Léger contrasts smooth curves with sharp angles, bright hues with black and white, making a striking image that engages us and encourages us to search for imagery and meaning within the abstract composition.

Created in 1955, this work was printed by Jean Bruller and is marked with his 'B' in the left margin. Hand signed by Fernand Léger (Argentan, 1881- Gif-sur-Yvette, 1955) in ink in the lower right margin and annotated 'FL' in black in the plate in the lower right, this work is numbered from 71/200 in pencil the lower left margin.
