The exhibition Fernand Léger and the rooftops of Paris. Shows that Léger was inspired by the many chimneys and plumes of smoke visible from the windows of his studio in Paris between the years 1911 and 1912, the French painter Fernand Léger created his series titled Fumées sur les toits (Smoke on the roofs). With a spotlight on this important moment in Léger’s career, the exhibition explores how these paintings led to some of the artist’s best-known Cubist works.
The design of the exhibition is distilled from its paintings, the “language” of Leger with the contrast lines in his work has resulted in a custom typeface with a black outline. This is worked out in the identity as well by for example a timeline which is made from this outline. Spatial Design by Lies Willers.
