Born 6 October 1887 as Charles-Edouard Jeanneret, he adopted the pseudonym "Le Corbusier" in 1920 when he was active as architect and theorist; he used the pseudonym for his paintings from 1930 on. Le Corbusier emigrated to France in 1917 and was naturalized in 1930. Born into a family of horologists and enamelers, he studied at école d'Art in Chaux-de-Fonds, but was largely self-taught in painting and architecture through study trips. In the 1920s, he emerged as the most important architect of the "International Style" in France. He established the Fondation Le Corbusier in Paris which allowed his personal library and archives to be cared for and available to scholars.
