Fernand Leger – The Two Lovers
Original Fernand Leger The Two Lovers Lithograph
This beautiful lithographic print advertised the opening of Fernand Leger’s exhibition: Paintings at the Musee de Lyon in 1955. It was designed with 4 colours. It is a variant of several paintings by Leger based on “La Partie de Campagne” (a picnic in the countryside).
The subject of leisure time and holidays was very important in the artist’s work, as it had become a law under the Popular Front in France. Leger glorified workers in his paintings, as he saw them as the true heroes of the modern Industrial Age. His work is eternally optimistic, even though he himself had gone through the horrors of World War I as a soldier, along with his close friend, Fernand Mourlot.
