Le Corbusier (1887–1965) Le Corbusier was the pseudonym of Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, an influential Swiss architect and urban planner. Time magazine said, “Irascible, caustic, Calvinistic, Corbu was modern architecture’s conscience.” Throughout his long and productive life Le Corbusier was a respected theorist and practitioner who was also known for his abstract paintings. When Karsh photographed Corbu in his home, he found the architect, artist, and author cooperative, but quiet. Karsh seated him before one of his paintings and Corbu perched his distinctive, bold, black, round-rimmed eye-glasses on his forehead as was his habit.
