Léger knew Cubist painters and writers, and exhibited in the Salon des Indépendants 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 Léger. She tried to organize an exhibition for him and made unsuccessful attempts to interest the Hollywood film community in his art.
