The Walking Flower

THE SQUARE - Luxembourg-Kirchberg (L)

Fernand L├ęger


‘The Walking Flower’ is a world-famous work by the French painter and sculptor Fernand Léger (1881-1955), a contemporary of Picasso. 

Fernand Léger made several versions of this work during his lifetime, in various materials and sizes. Five sculptures were made after the death of Fernand Léger on the basis of the artist’s preparatory sketches. One of the works has been installed in front of 'The Square' building in Luxembourg.  It forms part of the urban art collection that decorates Kirchberg’s business district, alongside the works of Marta Pan, Jean Dubuffet, Richard Serra, Franck Stella, and so on.
