The very brilliance of Leger's early work is such that for many commentators the second half of his career is marked only by a gradual decline in significance, especially in comparison with those other two masters of a late flowering, Picasso and Matisse. The principal question to be answered by an exhibition which traces the evolution of Leger's work on canvas and paper from the mid-point in his career is 'Is this a fair judgement ?' But there are also important subsidiary questions, some relating to the precise nature of Leger's art and his ambitions, others to the standpoint from which such judgements are made. Leger is now generally taken as one of the pioneers of a more public role for the artist, and yet during his lifetime, he achieved little of permanence in this field. Furthermore, any current evaluation of the importance of Leger's late work will necessarily reflect changing attitudes to subject matter in painting.
