Show of the week: American Masters: Charles & Ray Eames—The Architect and the Painter

American Masters details the enormous influence of this husband-and-wife design team through archival footage and interviews with experts and family members.

Husband-and-wife designers Charles and Ray Eames may be best known for their iconic Eames lounge chair, but the impact of their work reverberated across American culture. Through colorful archival footage and interviews with experts and family members, American Masters draws a nuanced portrait of the couple’s complex partnership and marriage, and shows how their utopian ideal of delivering “the best for the most for the least” expanded into filmmaking, public exhibitions, and government PR. Monday, Dec. 19, at 10 p.m., PBS; check local listings
