Woman in Blue - Léger

We just learned about the famous work of art Fruit Dish on a Checkered Tablecloth - GrisHouses at L'Estaque by French painter Georges Braque.

Another famous work of art is the painting Woman in Blue by French painter Fernand Léger.

Léger's painting is a part of the Cubism style of Abstract Art.
In his style, he sometimes used lots of shaded shapes that looked like tubes. So some artists nicknamed his style tubism instead of cubism.

In his painting Woman in Blue, he used shapes to try and make a different picture of a woman using interesting shapes.
