Art In America

Le Corbusier

at Museum of Modern Art,
11 W 53rd St New York, NY 10019

Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris, better known as the famed modernist architect Le Corbusier, was also a prolific painter, photographer, writer and draftsman. The exhaustive exhibition "An Atlas of Modern Landscapes" traces his globe-trotting career from his youth in rural Switzerland and travels throughout Western Europe and the Balkans to his lucrative Paris-based architecture practice and his creation of Chandigarh, the capital city the Indian government commissioned him to design in the late 1940s. Four room-size domestic interiors accompany the over 300 paintings, drawings, sketches and models in the show.
