Eileen Gray and the design of Sapphic modernity : staying in by Jasmine Rault( Book )
4 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 165 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 : her life and work : the biography by Peter Adam( Book )
4 editions published between 2008 and 2014 in English and held by 77 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Eileen Gray is regarded as one of the most important furniture designers and architects of the early 20th century and the most influential woman in those fields. Her work inspired both modernism and Art Deco. Her design style was as distinctive as her way of working, and Gray developed an opulent, luxuriant take on the geometric forms and industrially produced materials used by the International Style designers, such as Le Corbusier, Charlotte Perriand and Mies Van Der Rohe, who shared many of her ideals. Her voluptuous leather and tubular steel Bibendum Chair, and clinically chic E-1027 glass and tubular steel table are now as familiar as icons of the International Style as Le Corbusier and Perriands classic Grand Confort club chairs, yet for most of her career she was relegated to obscurity by the same proud singularity that makes her work so prized today. This stunningly illustrated volume is set to be the definitive biography and survey of her eventful life and groundbreaking career

Eileen Gray : architect/designer by Peter Adam( Book )
8 editions published between 1987 and 2000 in 3 languages and held by 26 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."--Jacket
