NameLe Corbusier "Le Grand" - A Spectacular Visual Biography of his Life and Work
DescriptionUsing the same grandly oversized format as Warhol "Giant Size" (Phaidon, 2006), Le Corbusier Le Grand includes approximately 2,000 images and documents, many previously unpublished, featuring his major built works, urban plans, paintings, publications, and furniture as well as sketches and archival photographs. Rarely seen photographs and personal correspondences also shed new light on Le Corbusier’s relationships with Josephine Baker, Eileen Gray, Fernand Léger, Pablo Picasso, Jean Prouvé, and many others. The book includes an insightful introductory essay by France’s most authoritative architectural historian and critic, Jean-Louis Cohen, and incisive chapter introductions by highly regarded Le Corbusier scholar Tim Benton. A separate booklet includes translations of documents, letters and extensive annotations on his drawings, many of which have never been translated into English before.
