The inheritance left by the versatile architect of Villa Savoya, one of his most recognized works, ranges from modern architecture, furniture and an avant-garde style reflected in countless paintings.
Although in the exhibition that now houses Guillermo de Osma Gallery in Madrid we can find furniture by the swiss architect, the main works are his paintings, to which he devoted as much attention as to his architecture. In these paintings, Le Corbusier reflects an abstract image of women and a perfect mastery of color. They are directly influenced by Purism, movement that generated along with the french painter Amédeé Ozenfant after what they considered the decline of Cubism. With a globalizing intention, Purism allowed him to cover all the artistic facets.
