Friday Photo: Eames Heaven

(Photo: Wright)

Go up, up, and away the Charles and Ray way with the iconic cloud backdrop that you may recall from some of the dynamic duo’s photo and film projects. This particular version was created for the 1976 exhibition “Connections: The Work of Charles and Ray Eames,” and it’s among the treasure trove of 133 Eames things that will go on the block at Wright’s April 8 sale. The auction house estimates that the acrylic-on-canvas backdrop will sell for between $5,000 and $7,000, but for this rare specimen of Eames-specific whimsy, we think the sky’s the limit.
