about work:
In 1965, Le Corbusier revisited a series of pastel sketches he drew a decade earlier in 1953, turning them into a portfolio of 20 etchings and aquatints known as “Unité, Planche.” Produced in collaboration with Atelier Crommelynck printing workshop in Paris, the “Unité, Planche” works are an homage to the Purism art movement, which Le Corbusier founded alongside the artist Amédée Ozenfant in the 1910s and ’20s. As a Purist, Le Corbusier wanted to simplify the extravagant geometric abstractions of the Cubists, instead using organic, elemental shapes to create still lifes and portraits of women—both of which can be found in “Unité, Planche.” While some of the prints in “Unité, Planche” are black and white, many others feature technicolor backgrounds. After all, Le Corbusier once said, “Color is an immediate and spontaneous expression of life.”

about artist:
Born Charles-Édouard Jeanneret, visionary architect and designer Le Corbusier developed new models for post-industrial urban living. He based his design philosophy on systems of proportion, modularity, and geometry; these principles infiltrated his writing, theory, and painting, as well as urban planning. Though Le Corbusier took inspiration from historical architects such as Vitruvius, Leonardo da Vinci, and Leon Battista Alberti—polymaths who similarly explored the relationship between the body and the built environment—his designs were decidedly modern and unembellished. His buildings have been erected in France, India, Japan, and beyond. As a painter, Le Corbusier co-founded the early 20th-century Purist movement, which dictated that objects should be depicted in their most pared-back forms. He later embraced a more abstract sensibility centered on lines, shadows, and curvilinear shapes. At auction, Le Corbusier’s work has sold for millions.
