In anticipation of the our upcoming International Symposium on Eileen Gray, here is a taster from Peter Adam who is opening our Symposium on Tuesday evening. Adam is a British filmmaker and author. Born in Germany, his work includes Eileen Gray: Her Life and Work, Outlines : David Hockney and Art of the Third Reich.
‘Looking back at the many different phases of her work one discovers a singular mind, which coloured everything she created. Her contribution to twentieth century architecture is in her refreshing thoughts and un-dogmatic approach to the quality of living. She fought many battles most of all with herself. She did not look for fame or medals; another kind of dream inhabited her outlook on things and man. She felt deeply the spirit of things and objects, reflecting and perfecting them until a house, chair or a table became the friend of man.’
