Le Corbusier + Jeanneret /29 October 2015 noon ct


Wright presents Le Corbusier + Jeanneret, an exhibition and auction dedicated to the work of the architects including a private collection of designs from Chandigarh. This exhibition focuses on the influence of Le Corbusier’s design principles, as applied to art, architecture and design as reflected in the objects by the master and his cousin Jeanneret. Special focus is given the design of the High Court of Chandigarh, which illustrates the qualities of proportion, form and color which Le Corbusier applied to not only the city plan and structures, but also to interior layouts and the furniture within.

The sale includes the most comprehensive private collection of designs from Chandigarh to come to market and features a rare and important Judge’s Desk designed by Le Corbusier, alongside other works from the Judge’s chambers of the High Court. Another highlight of the sale is a rare Les Mains tapestry, a woven work that further exhibits the multifaceted vision of Le Corbusier.

All lots will be exhibited October 21st – 28th and 159 East 64th Street, New York. The auction will be held in Chicago on October 29th.
