Yesterday, we went to the Léger show at the Philadelphia Museum of Art. We've rarely been to a show there we didn't like, and this was another good one... but that's not what prompted me to put up this post.
As they always do, museum staff included work by other artists: people Léger knew, people who influenced him. They included in the show two advertising posters by "Cassandre", the pseudonym of Adolphe Jean-Marie Mouron.
Well, I'm smitten. I've set one as my computer desktop, and I might have found an alternative to bike lug porn for my drooling pleasure. I can't get enough of this guy.
He had a great look in person, too:
I should ever be that cool.
