Description

Le Corbusier, The Open Hand 1963 is a Limited Edition Le Corbusier Lithograph in colors. Le Corbusier, The Open Hand is signed and dated in the plate. Printed by Mourlot, Paris. Weber Pg 19.

In 1919 Ozenfant and Le Corbusier established the Purist journal L’Esprit nouveau. In the first issue of the journal, Charles-Edouard Jeanneret adopted the nom d’artiste Le Corbusier, as a pseudonym, reflecting Le Corbusier’s belief that anyone could reinvent themselves.

In the journal L”Esprit Nouveau Le Corbusier formulated his ideas of modern architecture, formulating strategies to transform society into a more efficient environment with a higher standard of living on all socioeconomic levels. Le Corbusier forcefully argued that this transformation was necessary to avoid the spectra of revolution that would otherwise shake society.

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.”

Le Corbusier, The Open Hand

One of the most important and influential architects of the 20th century, Le Corbusier was an architect, designer, urbanist, writer, painter and printmaker. Le Corbusier is famous for being one of the pioneers of what now is called Modern architecture or the International style. Le Corbusier’s career spanned five decades, with his buildings constructed throughout central Europe, India, Russia, and one each in North and South America. Le Corbusier was awarded the Frank P. Brown Medal in 1961 and died on 27 August 1965.

“I prefer drawing to talking. Drawing is faster, and leaves less room for lies.” – Le Corbusier
