Eileen Gray occupies a special place in the annals of 20th-century culture. Peter Adam was a long-time friend of the designer, and has had privileged access to her correspondence, drawing and journals as well as her architectural sketchbooks and photographic archives. From these sources he has built up a picture of Eileen Gray's eventful life, from her aristocratic beginnings in Ireland to the extravagant Art Deco years in Paris, and later, the south of France. Including a wealth of previously unpublished material - photographs, drawings, diaries, letters and designs - this volume is a mine of fascinating information. Includes a catalogue raisonne of all Eileen Gray's furniture and an extensive bibliography.
