Through her unique vision, imagination, and sensibility, 20th century architect Eileen Gray changed the way we live with furniture and within houses. The film documents the life and career of one of the most influential, but least known, modernist icons who built the first concrete modernist villa and made the most expensive piece of furniture ever sold at auction. In a historical, scholarly, and cinematic investigation, never-before-seen footage and candid interviews with the world’s foremost scholars, curators, auctioneers, and collectors chronicle the fierce dedication of Gray’s work and unswerving faith of aesthetic vision that defined much of Gray’s immersion in art, design, and architecture. Discussion with director Marco Orsini, Caroline Constant, Peter Waldman (U.Va.) and Ed Ford (U.Va.)
