Eileen Gray

Eileen Gray was born in 1878 to an aristocratic family in a small town in the south-east of Ireland and spent her entire childhood here. To develop his artistic sensibilities he studied at the Slade School for Fine Arts in London. In 1902 he moved to Paris, where he spent most of his life and where he continued to perfect himself in the art of drawing and oriental lacquers. Here he meets the Japanese Sugowara with whom he perfects his knowledge of the use of lacquer and develops new furnishing objects with surprising colors and subdued shapes.

In Paris he also meets Le Corbusier, who, given the potential of Gray , encourages her to start architecture studies, which will lead to

end.

In the late twenties and early thirties, Gray is involved in the Union des Artistes Modernes, where she becomes a well-known and appreciated member.

An anomalous figure, a personality out of the ordinary, throughout her life Gray intertwines her sensitivity as an artist and as a woman with the most important events and protagonists of history of the Modern Movement in architecture.

The independence and originality of his thought and actions draw a very particular personal and artistic path. "Art must be the extension of life" this sentence written by Gray in 1929, contains the deepest and most authentic meaning of his research: from the first works as an artisan and lacquer artist, to design, up to the latest projects. p>

In the last years of his life, Gray becomes more and more lonely and little involved in social activities, finally dies in Paris in 1976
