Adrien Couvrat – internationally recognised Parisian painter and visual artist – has painted a series of canvases specifically for the Villa “Le Lac” Corbusier (Corseaux, Switzerland) in consonance with the colours of the walls and the dimensions of their openings. In the imposing avant-garde embodied in the Villa “Le Lac” (1923), Le Corbusier implemented a subtle play of colours in which each hue has a function or a symbolic import. A given colour placed next to another will produce a particular atmosphere – a tone. That is Le Corbusier’s “colour keyboard”. Adrien Couvrat has placed himself at the controls of an instrument and played a score in which architecture, painting and the museum experience are in symbiosis.
