Photo certificate of authenticity by Mme Naïma and M. Jean-Pierre Jornod. Geneva, December 2009.

The sketch was most probably made for the study of the book "Le Corbusier Dessin", which between 1965 and 1968 was realized and published by Jean Petit. The subject refers to the drawing "Déjeuner près du phare", which finally was illustrated in the book.
The work is registered at the archive of Mme Naïma Jornod and M. Jean-Pierre Jornod and will be included in the forthcoming Catalgue Raisonné of the Works on Paper.
