Description

Le Corbusier, Tapisseries 1955 is a Limited Edition Le Corbusier Lithograph on Arches paper created for the ‘Tapisseries’ Exhibition Poster, before lettering. Le Corbusier, Tapisseries is signed ‘L-C 55’ in the plate lower right. Printed by Mourlot, Paris.

At the beginning of the 1930s, the feminine figure took a dominating place in Le Corbusier’s art, and would continue to be a central theme for Le Corbusier’s original prints, lithographs, etchings, collages, paintings, and sculptures. Although Le Corbusier was primarily international recognized for his developments in modern architecture and furniture, Le Corbusier did have a number of smaller exhibitions of his art, mostly toward that later end of his life time.

Le Corbusier’s art emphasized clear forms and structures, corresponding to his architecture, which is based on elemental geometric forms. In 1943 Le Corbusier applied a similar interdisciplinary approach to developing “Modulor”, a system of proportion based on the male figure and the Golden Ratio, used to determine the proportions of units in architecture and technology. It is also the basis of Le Corbusier’s work in furniture design. Many of Le Corbusier’s pieces of furniture have become design classics. Le Corbusier placed systems of harmony and proportion at the centre of his design philosophy.

Championed by Interior Designer Heidi Weber, Le Corbusier continued to create original prints, lithographs, and etchings at the Mourlot Lithography Studio in Paris even in his old age. The well of Le Corbusier’s artistic views inspired a series of lithographs and original prints in which linear elements prevailed. Le Corbusier’s lithographic oeuvre forms a closed unity, with re-visited themes such as the “Taurus”, “Birth of Minotaurus”, and “Modulor.”
