By devoting an exhibition to Nadia Leger (1904-1982), the museum bring to light an accomplished artist who has remained in the shadows until now. Her immense talent was long overshadowed by the fame of her husband, the painter Fernand Leger, to whom she devoted her life. However, Nadia Leger is at the origin of a rich and varied work, of an extraordinary quality. Her works cross the greatest pictorial currents of the 20th century, from suprematism to cubism, passing through surrealism to a socialist realism in the chromatic tones heralding Pop art. The drawings, gouaches and paintings testify to the diversity of the artist's oeuvre. The sixty or so works come mainly from the Nadia Leger fund preciously preserved by her beneficiaries. Many of the pieces, unknown to specialists and collectors, are presented for the first time to the public.
