Mother and Daughter

Mother and Daughter, c.1950 by Fernand Leger is an original Lithograph print in colors, from the deluxe edition of 100 with wide margins, for ‘Derriere Le Miroir’. This print is plate signed in the lower right.

In the mid-1920s Léger was associated with the French formalist movement called Purism, which had been launched by the painter Amédée Ozenfant and the painter-architect Le Corbusier. Purism was an attempt to strip Cubism of its decorative aspects; Léger consequently adopted flatter colours and bold, black outlines in his work. From then on, his art was essentially figurative, and the only significant change in his style occurred late in his career, during World War II, when he began to draw his figures in gray and black and to use bands of colour as abstract background elements.
