Freedom, Peace, Solidarity was a screenprint, designed by Léger in 1950 to raise money and awareness for the World Peace Movement. Léger served in the French army during WWI, and saw the atrocities of war first-hand. After the conflict, Léger became an active advocate for peace, and in 1948 became a founder-member of the National Council of the World Peace Movement.
