Author: Eastberg, John C.; Vogel, Eric

Description: Layton Art Gallery, Milwaukee, Wisconsin. "Partridge was a great admirer of Frank Lloyd Wright and that he had gathered many of his drawings, models, renderings, and project photographs for an exhibition in New York. She wrote to Wright... and inquired whether he would consider an exhibition of his work at the Layton Art Gallery... Wright responded immediately and agreed." While setting up the display he is interviewed and is quoted on November 20, 1930 "It will take Milwaukee fully a century to recover from the influence of these buildings" (their new courthouse). "A firestorm ensued in the Milwaukee press, which naturally increased attendance at the exhibition. Over the course of just three days, more than twelve hundred visitors came to the gallery, breaking all records for attendance..." We supplied one image of Wright for the book. Original list price $75.00. Gift from John C. Eastberg and Eric Vogel. (First Edition)

Title: Wright exhibition at the Layton Art Gallery, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 1930.

Description: The exhibition opened late November 1930. St. Mark’s in-the-Bouwerie Model (1929 project) is proximately featured, as is the Gas Station Model in the foreground. The Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation dates this project 1932, but it is seen here in 1930 (see Wright 1917-1942, Pfeiffer, pages 217-218). To the left is the Wright designed Skyscraper Vase. Designed and executed circa 1905, it appeared in photographs of Wright’s 1907 exhibition at the Art Institute of Chicago and published in "The Early Work" 1968, page 101-103, and measured 22.5 x 6.125 x 3.5. Behind the vase on the left and right are the Nakomis (left) and Nakoma (right) Sculptures, designed in 1924, photographed in 1926. While Wright is setting up the display he is interviewed and is quoted on Nov. 20, 1930, in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, "It will take Milwaukee fully a century to recover from the influence of these buildings" (their new courthouse). A firestorm erupted in the Milwaukee press, which increased attendance at the exhibition. See "Layton’s Legacy" 2013, pages 219-221.

Title: Wright exhibition at the Layton Art Gallery, Milwaukee, Wisconsin, 1930.

Description: The exhibition opened late November 1930. The Richard Lloyd Jones Residence (1929 - S.227) is proximately featured in the center. Drawings and illustrations drape the wall. The Nakomis Model, designed in 1924, photographed in 1926, sets above the partition to the right. On the table in the foreground are stacks of additional drawings for the viewers to thumb through. Of interest is the seemingly lackadaisical approach Wright took in displaying the illustrations, many of which are considered priceless today. While Wright is setting up the display he is interviewed and is quoted on Nov. 20, 1930, in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel, "It will take Milwaukee fully a century to recover from the influence of these buildings" (their new courthouse). A firestorm erupted in the Milwaukee press, which increased attendance at the exhibition. See "Layton’s Legacy" 2013, pages 219-221.

Description: "Modern Architecture, An Exhibition in the Galleries of the Museum. March 30 to April 22... The subject matter of the exhibition presented in the galleries of the Museum – assembled and circulated under the auspices of the Museum of Modern Art in New York... The time was scarcely ripe for a wide acceptance of such a view in America, although abroad Wright’s projects and executed buildings had been sumptuously published in Germany as early as 1912, and he had been invited to Japan in 1916 to build the Imperial Hotel in Tokio (sic). Only since 1928, after continental architects had united in a splendid tribute to his work, and after the Paris Exposition of 1925 had marked the triumph of radical tendencies in architecture and the industrial arts, has Wright come into his own as a prophet in his native land...."

Title: Opus 497 "Glass House" Model

Description: Designed by Frank Lloyd Wright in 1944-45 for the "Ladies Home Journal", the Opus 497 "Glass House" Model and Plan was published in the June 1945 issue. At first glance this image looks like a detail of Broadacre City, but upon further study, it was discovered to be a detail of the model built for the Ladies Home Journal in 1945. In January 1944, the LHJ began publishing new house designs by the country’s outstanding architects, "houses that point the way to better, less expensive living after the war". This caught the attention of the Department of Architecture and Industrial Design at the Museum of Modern Art. Seven of the models created for the LHJ, were the focus for the exhibition "Tomorrow’s Small House: Models and Plans" held at MOMA from May 29 - September 30, 1945. Also included in the exhibition was a model of a row-house and a neighborhood development. Originally created to enable color photographs to be taken of the models for the magazine, the models were so complete and detailed they made excellent displays. Detail of the entrance to the Opus 497 Model. Hand written on verso: "June 1945". Stamped on verso: "Acme Newspictures Inc., New York City". Caption pasted to verso: "761381RO (3) Detail: Wright House. Overhang at the entrance to the house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, would protect persons to and from car in driveway. Incidentally, that's strictly the model-makers' version of the post-war car, so don't go ordering it from Detroit. (6/1/45).) Acquired from the archives of the Seattle Times.

Title: The House Beautiful  (Original Collotype Proof)  (Proof photographed and hand printed by Frank Lloyd Wright circa 1896.  Proof on Japanese tissue before publication of "The House Beautiful" by William Channing Gannett. Auvergne Press, River Forest, Ill., 1897. Design: Frank Lloyd Wright.

Author: Wright, Frank Lloyd

Description: After commissioning Wright to design his home in 1893, William Herman Winslow also charged him with the design of this book, which they printed together by hand. The text is a quintessential expression of Arts and Crafts philosophy, but the design, apart from its great emphasis on decoration does not follow the usual Arts and Crafts lines. Rather it shows the innovative brilliance of Wright, ahead of his time in bookwork, just as he was giving the lead in architecture.   Published in: (Decorative Designs - Hanks, Pg 4), (Arch Rev 6/1900 pg 63), (Frank Lloyd Wright and the Prairie, Birk, Pg 77). This item was exhibited in Japan from January 2 - July 28, 1991 at four different museums as part of the exhibit titled “Frank Lloyd Wright Retrospective”.  It was also printed in the Guide with the same name, page 225, item #183.  (Sweeney 18)

Author: Cleary, Richard; Levine, Neil; Marefat, Mina; Pfeiffer, Bruce Brooks; Siry, Joseph M.; Stipe, Margo

Description: Published on the occasion of the exhibition "Frank Lloyd Wright, From Within Outward" May 15-August 23, 2009, Guggenheim Museum, celebrating the 50th Anniversary of the Guggenheim Museum. Providing a comprehensive view of Wright's works, Frank Lloyd Wright: Architecture and Life demonstrates the grand cannon of the master's work with over 200 of the most important projects he gave the world. With an in depth illustrative focus, drawing on color drawings, photos and blueprints, it is also an accessible view of Wright's career. While tracking these projects through a chronological filter, Architecture and Life provides an even greater focus on the nine most important of Wright's buildings to the story of his life and career. Those landmark buildings include the Johnson Wax Building from Racine, Wisconsin, built during 1936 to 1939; Taliesin, Wright's famous home and studio, built in 1911, and, of course, the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum itself, in New York City. (Publisher’s description.) Original list price $75.00. Two copies, one damaged. (First Edition)

Title: Wright on Exhibit. Frank Lloyd Wright’s Architectural Exhibitions (Hard Cover DJ) (Published by Princeton University Press, Princeton and Oxford)

Author: Smith, Kathryn

Description: "The first history of Frank Lloyd Wright's exhibitions of his own work—a practice central to his career. More than one hundred exhibitions of Frank Lloyd Wright's work were mounted between 1894 and his death in 1959. Wright organized the majority of these exhibitions himself and viewed them as crucial to his self-presentation as his extensive writings. He used them to promote his designs, appeal to new viewers, and persuade his detractors. Wright on Exhibit presents the first history of this neglected aspect of the architect’s influential career. Drawing extensively from Wright’s unpublished correspondence, Kathryn Smith challenges the preconceived notion of Wright as a self-promoter who displayed his work in search of money, clients, and fame. She shows how he was an artist-architect projecting an avant-garde program, an innovator who expanded the palette of installation design as technology evolved, and a social activist driven to revolutionize society through design. While Wright’s earliest exhibitions were largely for other architects, by the 1930s he was creating public installations intended to inspire debate and change public perceptions about architecture..."
