Introducing Miller House and Garden
Love the drawing at the bottom of this letter in which Mr. Miller is imaging people working on his house.
J. Irwin Miller (literally) illustrated what he wanted to be happening with construction on Miller House.
Here are some links mentioned in Tricia Gilson and my presentation, Use, Degradation, and Patina: A Case Study of Eames Furniture at the Miller House and Garden, at Future Talks 011, in Munich, Germany.
The presentation was given at Die Neu Sammlung on October 27, 2011. (The RAR pictured above is in the collection of this museum.)
Before this presentation, Tricia and I interviewed Eames expert, Daniel Ostroff, on Art21’s Blog in a two-part series: Following the Eames Legacy, a Discussion with Daniel Ostroff
