Le Corbusier – The man best known in black and white finally finds some colour. First published in Paris Match 1953, photographer Willy Rizzo captured the legend in Medium Format colour, the photos somehow not published since. Now, an exhibition at Corbusier’s own Maison La Roche, presented by Fondation Le Corbusier and Mr Rizzo, uncovers these beautiful shots laying out the full palette used in both his architectural drawings and his artwork.

Le Corbusier was born Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris in Switzerland on October 6, 1887. In 1917, he moved to Paris and assumed the pseudonym Le Corbusier. In his architecture, he chiefly built with steel and reinforced concrete and worked with elemental geometric forms. Le Corbusier’s painting emphasized clear forms and structures, which corresponded to his architecture.
