Ray Eames


Ray Eames was born in 1917 and studied art in New York City before she enrolled at Cranbrook in 1940. Being most famous for her contributions to the Eames Office, often her background as a painter is forgotten. These paintings were completed in the 1940s, before before she became renowned for her furniture and films. In their gentle curves and bold lines, one can see the inspiration that would develop into Eamesian design. Without Ray’s keen eyes and artistic intuition there wouldn't be an Eames Office.
