Le Corbusier Crossed Hands Lithograph
Le Corbusier Crossed Hands Lithograph (Mains Croisées) depicts a strong pair of hands and a head of a string instrument. This original stone lithograph is a perfect example of the architect and the painter within Le Corbusier battling against each other. Strong, colourful, contrasting surfaces are overlapped by linear constructions. Harmony, humour and balance.
“Le Corbusier’s method of working was a constant source of fascination for Heidi Weber. Initially, he created lithographs in black and white. Because of their close collaboration, Heidi Weber was able to suggest that she felt that something was missing. After considering this briefly, Le Corbusier admitted that she was right: “Yes, I should add colour.”
She was curious and asked herself how he would solve this. He went away and returned with pieces of coloured paper which he tore into different pieces. After he checked the linear drawings, he slid the scraps of paper around the drawing with his thumb until they found their rightful place, as if on their own.” – Heidi Weber 50 Years Ambassador for Le Corbusier, 1958 – 2008
