Le Corbusier painting a mural on Eileen Gray‘s E-1027 house.

While staying as a guest in the house in 1938 and 1939, Le Corbusier painted bright murals on its plain white walls, sometimes while nude. Infuriated, Gray considered this a defacing of her work and deemed the murals outright vandalism.

Whether he painted his murals out of admiration for Gray’s work or out of jealousy of her accomplishment we still don’t know.
