A look at Louis Kahn’s graphic work shows that his search for abstract monumentality, which culminated in his works of the 1960s, began decades earlier in his abundant drawings, travel sketches, and landscapes.
The studies, travel sketches, and landscapes shown in the exhibition—such as Kahn’s intimate landscapes from Gaspé, where he regularly vacationed during the 1930s and 1940s—are intriguing as graphic works in their own right. At the same time they are a vivid and highly personal pendant to his professional career, restlessly exploring the same themes and problems as does his architecture.
