Additional Catalogue Raisonné

of oils on canvas

We wish to express our deep respect to Nadia Léger and Georges Bauquier (Nadia’s third husband) for their remarkable work.  The catalogue raisonné prepared under their aegis includes approximately 1660 paintings.

Achieving a complete catalogue raisonné of Léger’s works on paper is a true challenge given that Léger was so prolific, but it may well be achievable for the oil paintings.

There are several reasons that may explain why a particular work might not have been included by Georges Bauquier : works given gifted directly by the artist which remained in private hands, works painted between 1940 and 1945 and sold in the United States directly by the artist, or works which remained in the family with its complicated structure…

Our endeavour here is to highlight these works as they come to our attention.

Please communicate to us your works and enable us to show unseen works from one of the 20th century greatest artists.
