Le Corbusier Prints for Sale

Le Corbusier (1887-1965) was born Charles-Édouard Jeanneret in Switzerland. He moved to Paris in 1917 and became a French citizen in 1930.

In 2018, Le Corbusier met the cubist painter Amédée Ozenfant, together they set up an anti-cubist movement and established the purist avant-garde review journal, L’Esprit Nouveau, along with the poet, Paul Dermée. They railed against elaborate nonstructural decoration and promoted a new style of functionalism

Le Corbusier was taught art history, drawing and painting by L’Eplattenier who also insisted that he study architecture resulting in him designing his first house at the age of 20.

He is primarily known for his work as an architect dedicated to improving living conditions for people living in crowded cities. He was a founding member of the Congrès International d'Architecture Moderne and designed buildings with steel and reinforced concrete using geometric form. His paintings and prints show this clear sense of form and structure which is recognisable in his architecture

In 2016, UNESCO listed 17 of his projects as The Architectural Work of Le Corbusier, an Outstanding Contribution to the Modern Movement.
