Summary
"In this penetrating and thoroughly researched book, Jennifer Goff draws on newly available archival material to add in substantial ways to the scholarly literature on Eileen Gray. Goff explores the myriad influences behind Gray's work in her artistic practice, her furniture and carpets, and her architecture. The book elaborates on Le Corbusier's role as mentor to her early development as an architect, gray's relentless pursuit of perfection in her work during the latter years of her life, and, most appropriately, her ongoing self-identification as Irish."--Back cover
