This rare lithograph by Le Corbusier depicts the Modulor Man, a figure playing an important role in the artist's architectural work. Following in the footsteps of Pythagoras and Da Vinci, he designed the anthropometric scale seen here.
Le Corbusier chose a male figure, with his arm raised, as the standard of measurement - representing the 'whole man'. Signed in stone with an intriguing annotation by the artist, "Ami du Modulaire, cherche par toi-même, invente, découvre... Apporte tes inventions, elles seront utiles. Merci ami, Le Corbusier".
