Fernand Léger: An artistic Odyssey in tapestries and succesful collaboration with Aubusson workshop
Fernand Léger, a key figure in twentieth-century art, left an indelible mark on the world of modern art. His bold artistic exploration, fusing cubism and abstraction, extended far beyond painting to embrace textile art. His collaborations with the Aubusson tapestry workshop led to the creation of five emblematic works: : La Grande Parade, Les Constructeurs, Composition murale, Le Bonheur et Composition à la coquille. The exhibition of Fernand Léger's tapestries in Aubusson is much more than just an artistic presentation. It's a celebration of the collaboration between a visionary artist and talented craftsmen.
