Joseph Fernand Henri Léger was a French painter, sculptor, and filmmaker who was deeply influenced by modern industrial technology and Cubism.
In his early works he created a personal form of cubism which he gradually modified into a more figurative, populist style. His boldly simplified treatment of modern subject matter has caused him to be regarded as a forerunner of pop art.
