Exposition d'art au Musée de l'Annonciade de Saint-Tropez



The exhibition "Les Couleurs de Nadia", which will be held from July 3 to November 14, 2021 at the Annonciade Museum, will offer the public the opportunity to appreciate this artist, who has been neglected for so long.

A cultural program of conferences and debates will honor women artists from the first half of the 20th century.

By  devoting  an  exhibition  to  Nadia  Léger  (1904-1982),    the    Musée    de    l’Annonciade    wishes  to    highlight  an  outstanding  artist  who  has  remained  in  the  shadows  until  now.  Her  immense  talent  was  long  overshadowed  by  the  fame  of  her  husband,  painter  Fernand  Léger, to whom she devoted her life.Yet Nadia Léger is at the origin of a rich and varied  work  of  extraordinary  modernity. 

Her  works cross the greatest artistic currents of the 20th  century,  from  Suprematism  to  Cubism,  from Surrealism to Socialist Realism with the chromatic tones that heralded Pop Art. In the USSR, the young Nadia Khodossievitch signed  her  first  works  under  the  aegis  of  Malevitch, a pioneer of Suprematism, of whom she  was  a  pupil,  and  Strzeminski,  an  icon  of  the  Polish  avant-garde,  before  joining  the  studio of Amédée Ozenfant and Fernand Léger in Paris. In the capital of art, she worked with Mondrian and Arp and rubbed shoulders with Picasso, Chagall and the entire intelligentsia of the time.

The paintings,    gouaches,    drawings    and    sculptures that will be exhibited at the Musée de l’Annonciade bear witness to this diversity. These fifty works come mainly from the Nadia Léger   collection,   preciously   preserved   by   her  beneficiaries.  Many  of  them,  unknown  to  specialists  or  dealers,  will  be  presented  for  the first time to the public and above all to a French museum.
