Herbert Matter (April 25, 1907 – May 8, 1984) was a Swiss-born American photographer and graphic designer known for his pioneering use of photomontage in commercial art. The designer’s innovative and experimental work helped shape the vocabulary of 20th-century graphic design.

Joseph Fernand Henri Léger; (February 4, 1881 – August 17, 1955) was a French painter, sculptor, and filmmaker. In his early works he created a personal form of cubism which he gradually modified into a more figurative, populist style. His boldly simplified treatment of modern subject matter has caused him to be regarded as a forerunner of pop art.

Tribute to Museum-of-Modern-Art-Director Alfred Barr – By Daniel Feral: «History Of How Art Is Influencing Art (1940 – 2010)»

The «see conference» is about visualising information. The results are becoming more and more artifical. Charts look more and more like paintings from Fernand Léger for example. Or a psychedelic drawing from Klaus Voormann. And it’s getting more and more complicated to understand what it’s all about. The less a chart is understandable the less I feel responsible for understanding it – and the more I like it. Therefore, the one above is really, really great! Visit also Pantheon.
