Fernand Leger. Machanical Elements, 1924. Léger rejects illusion to focus on the Here, Léger rejects illusion to focus on the mechanics of representation, drawing attention to them with roughly blocked forms, exposed supports, unmodulated color straight from the tube applied in painterly patches, and highlights detached from any light source. Strident black and white or colored striations clash with one another across the works.
