Eileen Gray and the design of Sapphic modernity : staying in by Jasmine Rault ( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 157 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Bringing together a range of theoretical and historical sources, from architecture and design, communication and media, to gender and sexuality studies, Jasmine Rault shows that Gray shared with many of her female contemporaries a commitment to designing spaces for sexually dissident modernity. This volume examines Gray's early lacquer work and Romaine Brooks' earliest nude paintings; Gray's first built house, E.1027, in relation to Radclyffe Hall and her novel "The Well of Loneliness"; and Gray's private house, Tempe a Pailla, with Djuna Barnes' "Nightwood". While both female sexual dissidence and modernist architecture were reduced to rigid identities through mass media, women such as Gray, Brooks, Hall and Barnes resisted the clarity of such identities with non-communicative aesthetics. Rault demonstrates that by defying the modern imperative to publicity, clarity and identity, Gray helped design a sapphic modernity that cultivated the dynamism of uncertain bodies and unfixed pleasures, which depended on staying in rather than coming out

Eileen Gray : architect/designer by Peter Adam ( Book )
6 editions published between 1987 and 2000 in English and Undetermined and held by 23 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"The revised edition of this book delves into Gray's life and career, from her aristocratic Anglo-Irish upbringing, to her early days at London's Slade School of Art, to her seventy years as an expatriate in Paris, where she enjoyed a milieu of famous and eccentric friends. A self-taught architect, Gray held her own in a profession dominated by men, building two legendary modern houses that are considered landmarks of twentieth-century architecture. Drawing on previously unpublished material, Adam traces the evolution of her projects in photographs, plans, and sketches, and in this new edition provides an invaluable catalogue raisonne of Gray's furniture as well as her architecture and drawings." "In addition to expanding the catalogue raisonne, Adam has updated the book with new, important entries to the bibliography and the list of exhibitions, and a new introduction. Illustrated with 335 reproductions and photographs, Eileen Gray: Architect/Designer continues to be a necessity for all architects, designers, and collectors who admire her work."--BOOK JACKET
