French painter Joseph Fernand Henri Léger (1881-1955) sculped, amade films and created stunning artwork.

 He drew on Cubism in his early work, which later took on a more figurative, populist style.

Amedeo Clemente Modigliani (1884-1920) meanwhile was not French, but Italian and produced a great many modernistic paintings and sculptures.

Mask-like faces and elongated forms dominated his work, most of which was created in...France. The country drew him in and the artist, when he died, did so in Paris.
