OK - forget this. I should have done a search - wasn't aware Pete
brought this up on this forum before. I do pete's website, and I had
asked him for the title of the Leger when he and Trevor had painted
their mural, based on it, but Pete couldn't remember where (on the
web) he had come across the Leger. I googled the world and
couldn't find it, so I'm sure you're right - it's a knock-off, not a real
Leger. (I like its cleaner look compared to legit Legers, but maybe
that makes me forever a geek and never an artist.)

I guess the reason Pete never got back to me on this is he was
feeling embarrassed! (maybe not).

If you know of a Leger piece this was likely based on, I'd like to
know what it was... (3 Women?)

It never hurts to ask. :)

I would say "Three Women" might be a good choice; however, not that familiar with Leger to say for certain.
