Bauquier, Georges. FERNAND LEGER: Catalogue Raisonné de l'Oeuvre Peint. Tome IV: 1929-1931. 316 pp. with approximately 250 illustrations in color and b&w. Large 4to, cloth. Paris, Maeght, 1995.
This fourth volume in the beautifully produced ten volume catalogue raisonné of the paintings of Fernand Léger covers the years between 1929 and 1931. The work executed between 1927 and 1931 (which immediately preceed Léger's first visit to the United States in 1931) are charaterised by the artist as "objects in space", moving objects away from the structures which supported them, redefining their meaning in the process. This volume, like the others, presents the paintings in mostly full-page color reproductions with the text on the facing page. Each entry includes provenance, history, and detailed bibliographic information. Text in French.
