Eileen Gray, The Unsung Modernist Architect
and Designer, Comes Into Full View -
A Retrospective at the Bard Design Gallery
Join TTN members for an interactive small group viewing
with Olivia Kalin, Lead Museum Educator, using Zoom.
We will see furnishings, sketches, photos, and archival
documents produced during Gray’s
remarkable, groundbreaking, seven decade career.
Born in 1878 in Ireland, Eileen Gray was one of the twentieth century’s most accomplished designer-architects whose artistic practice also included painting and photography. Today she is recognized as a pioneering woman in what was the predominantly male field of modern architecture.
Gray opened her Paris shop, Galerie Jean Désert which sold furniture and rugs in 1922.
The Galerie also served as an exhibition space for modern art, making Gray, working under a male pseudonym, one of the first women gallerists. Gray also offered interior design services, and her clients included Juliette Lévy, the Maharajah of Indore, and Jacques Doucet. From the early 1920s, she was designing furnishings in tubular metal and other modern materials and producing architectural projects, including homes in France. Eileen Gray died in Paris in 1976 at the age of 98.
