Signed and dated lower right. 42,2 x 27,2 cmProvenance : Collection of Monsieur X, Paris. A certificate from Mr Eric Mouchet dated 18 April 2018 will be given to the buyer. The scarcity of materials led Le Corbusier to use unusual media during the war; in this case, sheets of laid paper, presumably intended for correspondence, which are folded in half originally. There is a whole series of drawings dated 1942, which, as in this case, are done on sheets with a median fold.
