About the artwork
About the artist
About the artwork
Léger’s inspiration for this painting, as alluded to in the title, was Jacques-Louis David’s Death of Marat, 1793. Visually, Léger’s painting does not resemble Louis-David’s, and Léger did not share Louis-David’s political views, but he did admire this early use of art to present a political cause, and believed that art was for everyone, not just society’s privileged elite . Léger’s group scene shows people of different races, ages, and classes united by a shared leisure activity – cycling. Doves and olive branches complement the scene, emphasising Léger’s pacifist ideals.
