Fernand Leger was a French painter and designer born in Argentan, Normandy in 1881. He started out as apprenticed to an architect at Caen 1897-9.  Moved to Paris in 1900 and worked as architect’s draughtsman and also studying at the École des Arts Décoratifs and the Académie Julian.

He was influenced from 1907 by Cézanne and met Delaunay, Gleizes, Douanier Rousseau and others; participated from 1909 in the Cubist movement and developed a semi-abstract Cubist idiom with dynamic contrasting tubular forms.
