L├ęger knew Cubist painters and writers, and exhibited in the Salon des Ind├ępendants in 1911. As he progressed, he became more interested in movement and color than the Cubists, and is best known for his large figures in mechanized, industrial settings. For a time in 1935, Galka Scheyer acted as an agent for L├ęger. She tried to organize an exhibition for him and made unsuccessful attempts to interest the Hollywood film community in his art.
