About the Author

Following a BA Hons degree in French and an MA in South Asian studies, Mo Teitelbaum found herself in Paris in the early 1970s, engaged in research for a PhD on the history of French Indochina. One single event then made her change focus as a historian — a meeting with Eileen Gray. The feature article she subsequently published in the Sunday Times Magazine on the ninety-six-year-old designer, was the very first to reach a mass readership. Major museum exhibitions on Eileen Gray followed. Concerned now that other extraordinary lives and talents may have been overlooked, and certainly never made available to such a readership, Mo Teitelbaum now dedicates herself to retrieving "lost" histories to present to a wider public. For example, the stark and unique architecture of the first modernist villa on the Mediterranean — the Villa Noailles of Mallet-Stevens — known to a few, she wrote about for The World of Interiors. Six years of research in South America have resulted in The Stylemakers — another history that was lost to a wider public.
