Situated at the epicenter of Zurich, Gallery Placart specializes in Original Vintage Posters and artworks by Le Corbusier. This allows us, for instance, to offer the worldwide largest selection of lithographs and engravings by LC. PLACART is a member of the International Vintage Poster Dealers Association IVPDA || Author and Publisher of the so far only comprehensive catalog of Le Corbusier's prints.


Gallery owner Tomas Rabara - originally a journalist, reporter and copywriter - got infected with the LC virus twelve years ago by his wife, who was Heidi Weber's assistant at the Centre Le Corbusier for two years after studying architecture. In 2010 the couple's first exhibition dedicated to his work took place, "Le Corbusier - Baumeister des Interieurs" (Le Corbusier - Master Builder of Interiors), which was followed by further exhibitions - among others in 2013 at the Architekturforum Zürich, on the occasion of which Tomas Rabara won Mario Botta for a lecture on how inspiring the immense artistic work of the Swiss universal genius is for him.


Tomas Rabara soon found access to the world of posters themselves through artist posters created by LC for his own exhibitions; the sheer abundance of motifs of captivating artistic quality, the congenial combination of text and image, as well as the aptly captivating of the respective status and zeitgeist - whether in art, fashion, politics or industry - turn posters into grandiose images and famous sources that bring the past directly before the eyes of every viewer and thus strengthen their awareness of the present. There are few posters that made history - but countless that show it in such an accessible way that it is unparalleled.


In the meantime author of the catalogue "Bauen auf Kunst - Le Corbusiers Druckgraphiken aus fünf Jahrzehnten" (2013) and member of the International Vintage Poster Dealers Association, Tomas Rabara has completed a CAS at the Hochschule der Künste Bern (Bern University of the Arts), which was devoted in particular to printing techniques, the recognition of reproductions and counterfeits, and provenance research. He is a profound expert on Le Corbusier's work as well as on original posters; his clients include lovers and veritable collectors, companies and public institutions. He guarantees the authenticity of all the works offered by Placart and is happy to introduce you to his specialities and advise you on the purchase of a work.
