Wright presents Le Corbusier + Jeanneret

29 October '15

Wright presents Le Corbusier + Jeanneret, an exhibition and auction dedicated to the work of the architects including a largest private collection of designs from Chandigarh to ever come to auction.

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 Pierre Jeanneret. Special focus is given the design of the High Court of Chandigarh, which illustrates the qualities of proportion, form and color that 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. Other lots include a rare and important tree trunk table and a rare library bibliotheque by Pierre Jeanneret.
The exhibition will be presented as a dramatic installation in a Upper East Side townhouse, a unique setting contextualizing the works within a setting both domestic yet foreign. A special catalog featuring essays and vintage images alongside photos and details of these exceptional works.

Le Corbusier + Jeanneret will be exhibited at 159 East 64th Street in Manhattan from October 21–28. A champagne reception will take place October 27. The auction will be held in Chicago on October 29th at noon CST.
