"Fernand Leger is the only major modern artist to choose modernity itself as his subject. From his early series "Contrastes de formes," of 1913-14 - the first fully abstract works to emerge from Cubism - through his paintings of construction workers from the late 1940s and early 1950s, his enduring subject was the pulse and dynamism of everyday life. Leger saw the twentieth-century environment as "a state of contrasts," a condition that he translated into art through forceful juxtapositions of shape, color, and line. His attempt to reconcile the formal concerns of artmaking with issues of social responsibility continues to be relevant to the art world of today." "This book is published to accompany a retrospective exhibition appearing at The Museum of Modern Art in the winter and spring of 1998 - New York's first in-depth survey of Leger's work in over forty years. The essays include Carolyn Lanchner's account of Leger's experience of and interest in America (he visited the United States several times, and lived there during World War II), and also of America's interest in him. Jodi Hauptman explores refractions of Leger's interests in the work of more recent artists, and Matthew Affron discusses Leger's ambition to make an art reflecting the "new visual state" of modern life. The plate section reproduces over eighty of Leger's paintings and drawings, and is accompanied by a series of short essays tracing formal and thematic developments in his art."--BOOK JACKET

Henri Rousseau : dreams of the jungle by Werner Schmalenbach ( Book )
7 editions published between 1998 and 2000 in English and held by 431 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Where does Rousseau rank among painters of the late 19th century? Was his work really naive? Were his jungle paintings merely decorative? How did he measure up in terms of the young painters who discovered him, especially Fernand Leger? This book answers these questions by going beyond a study of Henri Rousseau's life and work by placing them in a greater art historical context
