paint by number....or....corbusier


1887
Born October 6 at La-Chaux-de-Fonds, Switzerland as Charles-Edouard Jeanneret.

1900-1907
Enrolled at the Ecole d'Art de La-Chaux-de-Fonds. Studies under the painter Charles l'Eplattenier, who convinces him, against his natural inclination to painting, to dedicate himself to architecture. Designed and built his first house at La-Chaux-de-Fonds.

1907-1911
Travels throughout Europe, from which he brings back many sketches. Frequents Josef Hoffmann's studio in Vienna and becomes acquainted with the ideas of Adolf Loos. Meets Mies van der Rohe and Walter Gropius at Peter Behren's studio in Berlin. Important formative period for the evolution of Le Corbusier.

1917
Departs definitively from La-Chaux-de-Fonds and settles down in Paris. Late that year he meets Amédée Ozenfant who initiates him to painting.
