No book has hitherto been devoted to the life and work of the architect and interior designer Emilio Terry. Yet this friend of Jean-Michel Frank, Christian Bérard, Boris Kochno, Salvador Dalí, the Vicomte and Vicomtesse de Noailles and so many other luminaries is an iconic figure of the glittering and lavishly creative years of the pre- and post-war periods. On his death, he bequeathed his prolific archive of documents relating to his work to the Musée des Arts Décoratifs in Paris, so that it should be made available to the public. After consulting this collection of drawings, sketchbooks, plans and maquettes over a three-year period, in this book Pierre Arizzoli-Clémentel documents in unprecedented detail the principal architectural and design projects on which Emilio Terry worked throughout his life. Here for the first time - in a field in which so much has been said and written Emilio Terry's own original documents offer eloquent support to a text that provides a more complete understanding of his work, including notably his projects at Amphion, Lutry, the Château de Clavary, the Villa Loste, the Hôtel de Chanaleilles and the Château de Groussay. A highly evocative biographical essay and comprehensive appendices complete this authoritative work, which will appeal equally to both aficionados of the evolution of tastes and fashion and to connoisseurs of architecture and interior decoration.
