Its fascinating that Le Corbusier was a modernist zealot, well, on paper, at the start...
but seemed to just contradict all of that tight modernism with a whole lot of primitive, Picasso-esque, suspiciously colourful, decorative paintings - which I think is very balanced, in truth.
"Je suis un acrobate de la forme", he reckoned.
(actually maybe Corb was pretty sad toward the end... alone in his fun cabanon... poor old Corb.)
The very top pic is a mural with which he vandalised a wall of the 'E-1027' house by Eileen Grey- he was obsessed with her and the house. This event says it all really- was the wild expressive heart stronger than the rational, bespectacled architect? err...oui )
