which is a tribute to the paintors multidisciplinary personality.The Metz retrospective exhibition took place within the 40 years anniversary of the Pompidou Center,

and  allowing a new perception of the artist through the unseen,rich collections of the museum.

Each painting or sculpture of the national museum of modern art will be placed in front of a work of Fernand Léger to create new formal associations.Fed by creative artistic friendships
Fernand Légers work renews itself from the relationship with the other artists and from the main artistic trends of the begining of the 20th century.
