In his work from the early 1920s, French painter Fernand Leger created images of humans interacting with machines. Indeed, his bold, block and cylindrical figures have a mechanical quality to them. By the 1930s and 1940s, however, the artist had moved on to depicting a different style of union — acrobats and divers with intertwined arms and limbs. SeeComposition aux deux perroquets (Composition with two parrots) and les Plongeurs (The Divers) for very vivid, graphic, and startling images of human unity.
