Marking the fiftieth anniversary of Le Corbusier’s death, Galerie Eric Mouchet is collaborating with Galerie Zlotowski to showcase Le Corbusier: Panorama of a Lifetime’s Work in Paris. The exhibition, opening April 23 and on view through July 25, will provide a comprehensive overview of paintings, drawings and engravings of the legendary Le Corbusier.
“Le Corbusier, who was never without a sketchbook in his pocket, devoted half of every day over a 45 year period to writing, painting and drawing - what he called his ‘Atelier de la recherché patiente,’” says the galleries. “His visual arts output was both highly original and prolific, stretching from 1917 to 1965. Up to the Second World War, this work was largely for his own personal research. Later, however, it helped drive the design and promotion of the Modulor, a ‘harmonious’ scale of proportions he devised in 1946.”
Take a look inside Le Corbusier’s mind and preview five of the prolific paintings that will be exhibited, after the break.
The exhibition at the Galerie Zlotowski will concentrate on Le Corbusier’s collages and will take place from April 23 through July 25. The Galerie Eric Mouchet will display a variety of drawings, sculptures, paintings and tapestry cartoons between April 23 and June 6.
