JOHN L. RAYWARD RESIDENCE (1955 - S.383)
   
Date: 1978

Title: John L. Rayward Residence "Tirranna", New Canaan, Conn (1955 - S.383), 1978.

Description: Viewed from the Northeast, along the river bank. Text on face: "Wright-designed Tirranna in New Canaan, Conn – all for $1.5 million." Clipping taped to verso: "For $1.5 million, you could buy this house. Have you ever pictured yourself living in a woodsy Connecticut house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright? One with its own swimming pool, soda fountain, sauna and telescope-equipped observatory? If you have $1.5 million to spare, you can do more than picture yourself there. Indeed, Sotheby Parke Bernet International Reality, a two-year-old offshoot of the art, jewelry, and antiques auction gallery, has the house for you." Stamped on clipping: "Oct 1 1978." Photographed on September 25, 1978. Acquired from the achievers of the Christian Science Monitor.

Size: Original 6.5 x 10 B&W photograph.

Title: Dining Room Chair designed for the John L. Rayward Residence "Tirranna", New Canaan, Conn (1955 - S.383), 1981.

Description: Oak chair, three-quarter view, facing forward and to the left. Light oak, upholstered seat, copper trim along the base, 49.5 (H) x 20 (W) x 21 (D). According to David Hanks, "Decorative Designs", 1979, pp. 164-5, the Raywards gave one chair (pictured page 165) to the Art Institute of Chicago in 1963. This was the same year the home was sold to H. R. Shepherd who completed the home. We have not located any photographs showing these chairs in the Rayward home. This design was also used in the Harold Price Sr. Residence (1954 - S.378), with a cushion added to the back (see Frank Lloyd Wright Select House 8, pp 145-7). They are also seen in the Donald Lovness Residence (1955 - S.391) (see Frank Lloyd Wright Monograph 1951-1959, pp.174-5). A slight variation has been seen at the Robert Walton Residence (1957 - S.421). Photographed by Quiriconi-Tropea Photographers. Acquired from Kelmscott Galleries.  Wright Chairs.

Date: 2017

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Bachman-Wilson House (Soft Cover) (Published by Scala Arts Publishers, Inc. New York)

Author: DeBerry, Linda; Turk, Dylan

Description: Originally designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1954, the Bachman-Wilson House now resides, fully restored, in the grounds of Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art in Bentonville, Arkansas. It is an example of what Wright called ‘Usonian’ architecture, a distinctly American and democratic style of residential architecture he developed during the Great Depression to be within the reach of the average middle-class family, without sacrificing quality. The house was originally situated in New Jersey but, after being threatened by repeated flooding, the entire structure was dismantled and transported to Crystal Bridges. Meticulously reconstructed from the original plans, the house opened to the public in the fall of 2015. This fully illustrated publication highlights this classic structure, and further cements the architectural legacy of Frank Lloyd Wright. (Publisher’s description.) Original cover price $14.95.

Title: Wright and New York, The Making of America’s Architect (Soft Cover) (Published by Yale University Press, New Haven and London)

Author: Alofsin, Anthony

Description: Back cover: Frank Lloyd Wright took his first major trip to New York in 1909, fleeing a failed marriage and artistic stagnation. He returned a decade later, his personal life and architectural career again in crisis. Booming 1920s New York served as a refuge, but it also challenged him and resurrected his career. The city connected Wright with important clients and commissions that would harness his creative energy and define his role in modern architecture, even as the stock market crash took its toll on his benefactors. Wright denounced New York as an "unlivable prison" even as he reveled in its culture. The city became an urban foil for Wright’s work in the desert and in the "organic architecture" he promoted as an alternative to American Art Deco and the International Style. New York became a major protagonist at the end of Wright’s life, as he spent his final years at the Plaza Hotel working on the Guggenheim Museum, the building that would cement his legacy...

Title: Hoffman Auto Showroom 1955 (1954 - S.380).

Description: Hoffman began importing Jaguars in 1948, and selected Wright to design the interior of the showroom. It featured a revolving display on which three to four cars could be displayed. The ramp rose from the back and partially wrapped around the ramp. The ramp allowed for additional displays as well as viewing cars from above. In 1953, when Hoffman began importing Mercedes-Benz, Jaguar opened their own showroom. Although designed as a Jaguar Showroom, it was never used as such. When the showroom opened in 1955, Hoffman displayed Porsches, BMWs and other cars. The circular emblem which sits atop the circular planter, just to the left of the BMW logo reads, "Hoffman, Largest selling organization of fine European cars in the U.S.A." Mercedes Benz, who held the lease, vacated the space, and in March, 2013, the building owners covered the windows and demolished the Wright designed showroom. Photographed by Ezra Stoller.

Title: Frank Lloyd Wright in New York. The Plaza Years, 1954-1959 (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Gibbs Smith, Publisher, Layton, Utah)

Author: Hession, Jane King; Pickrel, Debra; Forward by Mile Wallace

Description: Examines the momentous five-year period when one of the world's greatest architects and one of the world's greatest cities dynamically coexisted. From his suite, or "Taliesin East," as it became known, Wright negotiated-with varying measures of creativity, cooperation, and combat - an astonishing array of exchanges with the city's architects, artists, journalists, editors, publishers, designers, celebrities, power brokers, and bureaucrats. Most significantly, he shepherded the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum (1943-1959), his New York masterwork, to near completion from these sumptuous quarters. Explore the sophistication and vigor of Wright's final years, a time when he was an architect of legend and a bona fide celebrity, and New York was basking in postwar prosperity. (Publisher’s description.) Original cover price $29.95.

Title: Arts in Virginia - Fall, 1972 (Published in the fall, winter and spring by Virginia Museum, Richmond, Virginia)

Author: Cox, James A. D.

Description: "America’s greatest architect left three houses in Virginia, each created during the Most prolific years of his architectural life. Like Sir Christopher Wren in England two hundred years before him, Frank Lloyd Wright dominated the architecture of his country for two generations. But unlike Wren, who was Surveyor General of the Kings work for almost fifty years, he was never given the opportunity of designing a building for his government and his fame resulted from his own persistent nature and his genius. In fact he had virtually two careers, for in his late sixties, when most men would be considering retirement, he emerged from a decade of inactivity and for the next twenty-five years pursued with increasing vigor and inventiveness the most prolific years of his architectural life. It is to this period that Virginia owes its three splendid examples of his work: the Pope-Leighey House at Woodlawn, another house in Northern Virginia (Louis Marden) and the Andrew Cook House in Virginia Beach. Includes 13 photographs and illustrations of Wrights work. Original cover price $2.00. (Sweeney 1891)
