Originale Plakate in Zürich

Having become popular in Paris at the end of the 19th century, advertising posters soon after also seduced the passers-by in Switzerland with their bright colors and captivating compositons – a new form of art was born.

Each of the posters available at Placart is one of the rare copies of the respective circulation that has survived to this day. The great majority of the posters went missing as they were hung up in the streets. (Picture: Werdmühleplatz Zürich, 1913; source: Baugeschichtliches Archiv Stadt Zürich)

LC Built On Art

Le Corbusier’s essence cannot be caught without seeing also the painter in him – the art of modernism is his foundation. It is what he dedicates himself to every morning over decades. His development as an architect follows the one that he goes through as an artist.

LC’s graphic oeuvre grew over the course of five decades and comprises approximately 200 mostly hand-signed copperplate engravings, lithographs, as well as etchings which form an integral part of his artistic oeuvre.
