Léger’s series of gouaches and oils

Léger’s series of gouaches and oils, on the theme of two standing women, is one of his best-known projects of the 1920s and early 1930s, culminating in the large-scale
Le Grand déjeuner (1921) in the collection of the Museum of modern art (MoMA), New York.

As the artist famously stated, What does that represent? There was never any question in plastic art, in poetry, in music, of representing anything. It is a matter of making something beautiful, moving, or dramatic. This is by no means the same thing.
