Within months, however, and with Badovici’s encouragement, Le Corbusier had begun painting a series of eight murals on the walls of E-1027 (Fernand Léger had painted his first mural on the garden wall of Badovici’s house in Vézelay in 1934). Gray called Le Corbusier’s murals “an act of vandalism.” After the war, in 1949, he published photographs of his “murals at Cap Martin”, without mentioning her. “The villa that I animated with my paintings was very beautiful, white on the interior, and it could have managed without my talents,” he admitted, before claiming that the murals “burst out from dull, sad walls where nothing is happening . . . an immense transformation, a spiritual value introduced throughout.”
