- About the work
In his mature style, Fernand Léger worked a great deal with human forms, figures with flowing contours and with strong colours over the whole field. These dancers fly forward from the left and a draped piece of cloth on the right and the winding stalk of a rose the dancer on the left is holding in her hand contrast with the full surfaces of the dancers' skin. The keys? The keys are the starting point of the architectonic design on the right-hand side of the painting, contrasting in turn with the two triangular shapes. And finally, in contrast to the square and pointed shapes is a rounded, gently flowing "cloud frame" which completes the composition at the top and the bottom.
