Lot Essay

Eric Mouchet has confirmed the authenticity of this work.

The present work was likely created during one of the artist's trips to New York, where he represented France in a major architectural project to build the new United Nations Headquarters. Le Corbusier collaborated with the Brazilian architect, Oscar Niemeyer, to create the scheme that was ultimately chosen for the final design.
