    This exhibition is an opportunity to present for the first time some of the museum's recent acquisitions, a collection that is regularly enriched. In October 1954, Léger and his friend, the poet Blaise Cendrars, met at the Galerie Louis Carré to record a cross-conversation on the occasion of the exhibition "Landscape in the Work of Fernand Léger". Based on this rare document, the exhibition explores the way in which this theme nourished the painter's plastic research throughout his life. From the beginning, Fernand Léger challenged and questioned the traditional genres of painting. Alongside his fascination with the emergence of the modern city, Léger remained attached to natural elements and the representation of a certain rurality. The landscapes reminded him nostalgically of his childhood farm in Normandy, while his stays in the countryside of Rouses Point, during his exile in the United States, inspired him to create a new repertoire of forms, the starting point for his American Landscapes series. In contact with nature, Léger selected elements - branches, roots, flowers - which he sometimes captured on the spot, in the manner of the Impressionists. Isolated, seen in close-up, fragmented or recomposed, they acquire an artistic value because Léger strives to emphasize their formal beauty. Fernand Léger also deploys monumental works in the public space where he literally invests the landscape. In the theater, it becomes a "mobile set" while in architecture, Léger's colorful and contrasting compositions contribute to shaping the landscape of the 20th century. The facades of the museum, with their bright colors that permeate the Mediterranean nature, are a current and living testimony.
