Le Corbusier (Charles-Edouard Jeanneret-Gris) was a prominent international architect and artist born in 1887 in Switzerland. Le Corbusier studied chiefly under L’Eplattenier who taught him art history, drawing, and architecture. Le Corbusier is best known for his groundbreaking architecture built primarily out of steel and reinforced with concrete. His paintings also emphasized his modern architectural pieces along with the addition of geometric forms. Works by Le Corbusier can be found in the permanent collections of the Art Institute of Chicago, the San Francisco Museum of Modern Art, the Museum of Modern Art and many other collections.
This is a special edition of prints based on a tapestry commissioned for the Sydney Opera House in partnership with Utzon, another architect ca. 1960. "Les Dés Sont Jetés" translates to "The Dice are Cast".
