New view of Corbu

All of us who appreciate the genius and eccentricity of  Le Corbusier have seen photographs and caricatures of him...the tiny round glasses, the bow tie and suit, chatting with Einstein, even painting in the nude. And all in black and white.

At the end of 1953, photographer Willy Rizzo took a series of color portraits of Le Corbusier at the architect's apartment in Boulogne, his workshop at 35 rue de Sèvres in Paris, the National Museum of Modern Art and the studio which makes tapestries designed by Le Corbusier. At the time, three were published in Paris Match, but they have not been exhibited since. Through December 15, Rizzo and Fondation Le Corbusier are hosting a joint exhibit of the photos, which give us a completely new look at the man.
