L'Esprit Nouveau: Purism in Paris, 1918-1925.
by [Purist Art Movement] Eliel, Carol.

Publisher Information:
Abrams, New York: 2001.

A Fine tight unread copy in a Fine unclipped dust jacket. The Purist movement in art was founded by Le Corbusier and Amedee Ozenfant at the end of World War I. It focused on clean geometries in art interior and industrial design and urban planning. Ozenfant and Le Corbusier, critical of what they perceived to be a decorative trend in Cubism, advocated a return to clear, precise, ordered forms that were expressive of the modern machine age. As a movement in painting, Purism did not have an appreciable following. There were many painters, however, who, like the Purists, were attracted to a machine-inspired aesthetic; most notable were the French painter Fernand Léger and the American Precisionist painters of the 1920s. This exhibition catalogue examines over 75 works by Le Corbusier, Ozenfant and Leger. It contains 122 illustrations, 77 in color.
