Watanuki Ltd. has been handling drawings and prints by architects since its opening.

Le Corbusier, a 20th century architectural master who left many excellent works not only as an architect but also as a painter, never gave up his paintbrush throughout his life, creating oil paintings, sculptures, and prints with great passion.

The featured exhibit will focus on newly arrived representative color lithographs by Le Corbusier, including "Modulor" and "Totem".

Le Corbusier (1887-1965)
Architect. Born 1887 as Charles-Édouard Jeanneret-Gris in La Chaux-de-Fonds, Jura Mountains, in Switzerland. Le Corbusier's first design, Villa Fallet, was completed in 1906. In 1917, he settled in Paris and, shortly after, became one of the co-founders of L’Esprit Nouveau, an avant-garde review. In 1922, he established his architectural studio. Representative works include Villa Savoye, the chapel of Notre Dame du Haut in Ronchamp, the Convent Sainte-Marie de La Tourette, the National Museum of Western Art (Tokyo). He died in 1965 while swimming in Roquebrune-Cap-Martin, aged 78.
