Eames: The Architect and the Painter

Last month on KERA Channel 13, American Masters showed the documentary Eames: The Architect and the Painter discussing the relationship between Charles and Ray Eames and the Eames Office.  You can now watch the entire documentary online here.   You can also read some posts here from the Eames family about the film.

Hat tip to the Herman Miller Lifework blog for the links to the film and commentary from the Eames family.
