Une trentaine de photographies réalisées par Lucien Hervé au cours des années cinquante sont présentées à la Maison La Roche, siège de la Fondation Le Corbusier à Paris. Quelques dessins originaux de Le Corbusier représentant le site du Cabanon de Roquebrune-Cap-Martin complètent cette évocation de sa résidence d’été.
Le Corbusier is working. He’s on holiday at Cap-Martin, where he has built his Cabanon (3,66m x 3,36m x 2,26m) at the water’s edge. Le Corbusier draws, writes, has lunch with his wife Yvonne, and shares a joke with his neighbour Thomas Rebutato, the owner of L’Étoile de mer, a local guingette [restaurant with music for dancing]. The sea is just a few yards away. The Mediterranean waits for him to go for his daily swim: the sea he has always admired and loved, and which was to accompany him on his final journey. Hervé is working, too. He takes a few photos of Corbu at private moments. He records those rare moments when the pencil stops, when the mind rests, where the lure of the water gets the better of him.
Some thirty photographs taken by Lucien Hervé in the 1950s are presented at Maison La Roche, the headquarters of the Fondation Le Corbusier in Paris. A few original drawings by Le Corbusier of the Cabanon at Roquebrune-Cap-Martin complete this evocation of his summer residence.
