Title: Thomas Hart Benton, Frank Lloyd Wright, Studies In The History of Art III (Published by Williams College Museum of Art, Williamstown, Massachusetts)

Author: Wright, Frank Lloyd; Benton, Thomas Hart; Introduction: Onorato; Edited and Afterword: Fels, Thomas Weston

Description: A Transcript of the Addresses and Exchanges Between Frank Lloyd Wright & Thomas Hart Benton, Providence, Rhode Island, November 11, 1932. "...I remember, as  case in point, the second house I was asked to build. The first house I built was the Winslow House – it was a radical house, radical in true sense of the term. But my next – second – client came to me with a small illustration in his hand which he had cut out of some English magazine – with a picture of a very charming English half-timbered house one of your Eastern architects had built... ‘We would like to have you build our house, but I don’t want to go down the back streets in the morning to get to the train in order to avoids being laughed at by my neighbors...’ " (First Edition) Gift from Kathryn Smith.

WRIGHT & JOHNSON
   
Date: 2016

Title: Architecture’s Odd Couple, Frank Lloyd Wright and Philip Johnson (Soft Cover) (Published by Bloomsbury Press, New York)

Author: Hugh, Howard

Description: Advance Reading Copy. "In architectural terms, the twentieth century can be largely summed up with two names: Frank Lloyd Wright and Philip Johnson. Wright (1867–1959) began it with his romantic prairie style; Johnson (1906–2005) brought down the curtain with his spare postmodernist experiments. Between them, they built some of the most admired and discussed buildings in American history. Differing radically in their views on architecture, Wright and Johnson shared a restless creativity, enormous charisma, and an outspokenness that made each man irresistible to the media. Often publicly at odds, they were the twentieth century's flint and steel; their repeated encounters consistently set off sparks. Yet as acclaimed historian Hugh Howard shows, their rivalry was also a fruitful artistic conversation, one that yielded new directions for both men. It was not despite but rather because of their contentious--and not always admiring--relationship that they were able so powerfully to influence history..." (Publisher’s description.)

Title: Sullivan, Wright, and Elmslie. The Celtic Imagination and the Chicago School of Architecture. (Published by Kelmscott Enterprises, Inc.)

Author: Elliot, Scott

Description: "At the approach of the Twentieth Century a few of the leading architects and designers were calling for a return to nature as the guiding force in the construction and ornamentation of buildings and their furnishings... Wright’s use of ornament became increasingly restrained. Everything was symbolic. The circle represented infinity, the triangle structural unity, and the square integrity. The color red was the source of life. Wright’s personal insignia was a red square probably derived from the seal of ‘chop’ used by Hiroshige, the great Japanese master of the woodblock print. In the early 1890's Wright’s square enclosed the ancient Celtic symbol of the circle of infinity with the cross of faith running through it..."
