Tokyo museum to hold Le Corbusier exhibition

An exhibition of works by the French architect Le Corbusier will open at the National Museum of Western Art in Tokyo on Tuesday.

One-hundred forty of his works will be on display at the museum, which itself was designed by Le Corbusier and was added to the UNESCO list of World Heritage sites in 2016.

The exhibition will focus on the time when he was pursuing a new arts movement in Paris after World War One.

One of the works to be showcased is "Still Life with Numerous Objects," an oil painting depicting daily items in various colors. It highlights his unique sense of space.

The other pieces include architectural models and drawings.

Brigitte Bouvier, director of the Fondation Le Corbusier, said she wants visitors to see how his architectural works were influenced by his paintings.

The exhibition runs through May 19th.
