Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0714839051, Hardcover)Irish-born designer and architect Eileen Gray (1878-1976) settled in Paris in 1902 and became a leading figure in the French decorative arts of the 1910s and 1920s, creating luxurious lacquer furniture and carpets, and opening a boutique on the Faubourg St Honore. This is a comprehensive examination of her artistic production, including her early furniture and interior designs, and the beginnings of her architectural career, through a six-year collaboration with Rumanian architect Jean Badovici from 1926 to 1932. The book provides a portrait of Gray as a significant contributor to the Modern Movement: it examines the motivation and influences behind Gray's oeuvre and provides reference information, including a chronology, a catalogue raisonne of her projects, new translations of her most important writings, and many drawings and plans.
