Three Women by a Garden

Fernand Léger French

Not on view

Three generations are represented in this family portrait: grandmother, mother, and daughter. Placed between a domestic setting and an unidentifiable landscape, the three women exhibit neither individual features nor a sense of humanity. The impersonal tenor of this portrait mirrors Léger’s fascination with the technological advancements of the Machine Age.
