The Marc Domènech gallery is exhibiting some twenty paintings, drawings and collages by the artist.
Though especially famous for his architectural works, Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, better known as Le Corbusier, was also an urbanist, inventor, designer, philosopher, writer, poet, agitator, promoter and painter. The Marc Domènech gallery is currently hosting an exhibition of some twenty paintings by Le Corbusier, which will be on display until 18 January.
The aim of the gallery is for the exhibited works to share a certain uniformity. For example, all of them were created by Le Corbusier in the last thirty years of his life, and all have the human figure as their main focus, especially the body of women. Visitors to the gallery will find paintings but also drawings and collages. As a complement to the exhibition, a number of pieces of furniture designed by Le Corbusier are also on display.
Charles-Edouard Jeanneret was born in 1887 in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland, though he spent much of his life in France, where he died in 1965. As of last year, 17 buildings that are representative of his architectural work are on the list of Unesco World Heritage Sites. Buildings designed by him can be seen can be found in Europe, as well as in America and Asia.
