A special of the V&A’s Eileen Gray collection is open to a small group of AA Members and will take place on Friday 20th February lead by Assistant Curator of the V&A Furniture, Textiles & Fashion Department, Elizabeth Bisley. The visit will included the V&A’s print room, Word and Image collection (usually open by appointment only) and the furniture gallery.
Eileen Gray was one of the most unique furniture designers of the 20th Century, celebrated as one of the first voices of modernism as well as her pioneering work as a women within design.
In 2000, the AA inherited an interest in the copyright of Eileen Gray material held at the V&A, as part of a legacy received from Eileen Gray’s niece, the artist Prunella Clough-Taylor. The legacy supports a series of annual bursaries for AA students, administered by the AA Foundation in memory of Eileen Gray.
