Charles and Ray Eames were artists who inspired one another throughout their rather prolific careers. Charles was an architect and designer while his wife was a painter. They ran a Renaissance-style studio for nearly 40 years. The documentary, Eames: The Architect and The Painter tells the story of their collaboration, their marriage and their influence on others. It is narrated by James Franco with interviews from design historians, family members and designers who worked in the Eames studio.
Eames: The Architect and The Painter will be shown limitedly in New York and Los Angeles on November 18th, 2011 or you can wait for it to show on PBS’ American Masters on December 19th, 2011.
