Between 1937 and 1960, art critic Tériade commissioned some of the most prominent figures of the contemporary French art scene to produce lithographs for his luxury art journal Verve. Only 38 issues were ever published, each one richly illustrated with original prints editioned at the renowned Atelier Fernand Mourlot.

Joseph Fernand Henri Léger (1881 – 1955) was a French painter, sculptor, and filmmaker. After apprenticing with an architect in Caen from 1897 to 1899, Léger settled in Paris in 1900 and supported himself as an architectural draftsman. He was refused entrance to the École des Beaux-Arts but nevertheless attended classes there beginning in 1903; he also studied at the Académie Julian. Léger’s earliest-known works, which date from 1905, were primarily influenced by Impressionism. The experience of seeing the Paul Cézanne retrospective at the Salon d’Automne in 1907 and his contact with the early Cubism of Pablo Picasso and Georges Braque had an extremely significant impact on the development of his personal style. From 1911 to 1914 Léger’s work became increasingly abstract, and he started to limit his color to the primaries and black and white.
