In his handwritten SIGNED letter with Original Art incorporated in his signature, Leger references his Surrealist film, "Ballet Mecanique." "Received letter dated 22nd. Heard: Leger en Amerique, 16 mm 20 to 25 minutes, talky, noisy. If you want Ballet Mechanique, in 35 or in 16. I believe I have both, length 20 to 25 min. So Tuesday, May 5 - I think we will be Me - Nadia - Wanda, so 3. We should plan on 3 rooms or at least 3 beds...We'll...come by the farm probably Sunday...." He ends, "A Tois de mois 3, " and signs, "F. Leger," drawing a line around his signature starting from the "r" and ending in what could be the French Flag outlined. Leger refers to his film, "Ballet Mecanique," produced 1923 - 24. He wrote and co-directed this Surrealist movie with help form Man Ray and co-director, American filmmaker, Dudley Murphy (1897-1968). The American composer George Antheil (1900- 59) composed the score.

In addition to other works in 1952, a pair of Léger murals was installed in the General Assembly Hall of the United Nations headquarters in New York City.
