Table, pipe, livres, bouteille, papier by Amédée Ozenfant

In March 2018, the Fondation Gandur pour l’Art seized the opportunity to acquire one of Amédée Ozenfant's most ambitious and rare drawings, still in private hands, on the Paris art market. His upcoming departure for the Tokyo exhibition, Le Corbusier and the Age of Purism at the National Museum of Western Art (19.02 - 19.05.2019), is an opportunity to appreciate in detail his high formal and technical qualities while analyzing his pivotal position in the graphic work of the founder of Purism.
