Author: Bright, John Irwin

Description: Book Review: "Modern Architecture," Wright, 1931. $4.00. "These six lectures that Mr. Wright delivered in Princeton last year can be summed up as a statement of his belief that naturalness and honesty of purpose are the foundation of all true art. They are much more than a treatise on any special form of architecture. They embody, rather, his philosophy of the entire range of art, although the word ‘philosophy.’ taken in its usual connotation as a process of cold and speculative reasoning, does not fully prepare one for Mr. Wright’s fire and passion... But of even greater value that the technician is the thinker - the man who can broaden our mental horizon. In our present temper there is scant danger that there will ever be too many men like Frank Lloyd Wright." Original cover price 50 cents. (Sweeney 256)

Frank Lloyd Wright’s comments in his autobiography on Hollyhock House and the surrounding complex indicate the enthusiasm and regard in which he held this commission, the first of seven private residences designed and constructed in Los Angeles from 1919-1926: ‘Individuality is the most precious thing in life after all, isn’t it? An honest democracy must believe that it is. In any expression of human spirit it is principle, manifest as character that alone endures. Individuality is the true property of character. Hollyhock House is such a house’ " Includes 10 photographs. Original cover price $4.50. Gift from Kathryn Smith.

Author: Brenson, Michael

Description: Cover illustration: Frank Lloyd Wright’s vision of the Guggenheim Museum, seen here in a 1955 rendering by the architect. "Big Time at The Guggenheim. Big Art, Big Names, Big Shows, Big Money and Big Ideas are Driving Thomas Krens’s Museum. But Michael Brenson wonders if it’s all a big mistake. When the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum reopens in June, the art world will finally begin to get answers to questions that have been accumulating for more than three years now, since the then little-known Thomas Krens was called to New York City from Williamstown, Massachusetts, in the heart of Yankee America, and given the helm of one of this country’s least trendy and most European Museum..."

Title: Art & Man - April/May 1981 (Published by Scholastic, Inc. under the direction of National Gallery of Art.)

Author: Editor: Janet Soderberg

Description:
1) Frank Lloyd Wright. The American Dream. Architect Frank Lloyd Wright was called "the most arrogant man who ever lived," and "the most creative genius of all time." Find out how this controversial artist almost single-handedly invented a new American architecture. The structures you see on these pages. Guggenheim Museum and Fallingwater are among the most famous and important works of modern art ever created. They don’t look that unusual today, but when they were built, nothing like these two buildings had ever been seen before..."
2) "Visions of Perfection. The inside of a Frank Lloyd Wright house was just as important as the outside. Frank Lloyd Wright felt that every detail contributed to the total look of the space. So, when he designed a home he designed everything – furniture, curtains, rugs, window glass, lights, vases, dishes, napkins, silverware, musical instruments, even some of the clothes his clients were to wear in the house. Wright said, "Only in a grudging and dim way did the clients ever understand this idea. Usually they ran out of money and had to drag their old furniture into their new world. (The David Wright Residence.)

3) Poster: Frank Lloyd Wright‘s Guggenheim Museum. Poetry in concrete. "The museum is to be suitable for the new abstract art in which line, color, and form make up all language in themselves. The building will be a huge, white sculpture and it and the paintings will combine to form a beautiful poem." – Frank Lloyd Wright..." Illustration: Richard Estes. The Solomon R Guggenheim Museum, oil on canvas. 31" x 55"
4) "Frank Lloyd Wright: Defiant Genius. A flowing cape, a wide-brimmed hat, a graceful and commanding presence, a deep, pleasing voice, a handsome face topped by a head of snowy hair, and a long cane held like an orchestra conductor. Is this the description of a TV personality, a film star, or an actor? Although people knew that Frank Lloyd Wright was an architect, they were much more familiar with his personality than his buildings...."
5) "The Monstrosity? Find out what it was like to be among the first to see Frank Lloyd Wright‘s most famous building. On a crisp fall day in 1959, a number of people could be seen hurrying up New York City’s Fifth Avenue. By early afternoon a crowd of thousands waited patiently behind the police barricades. For seven years most of them had watched this structure rise on the vacant lot across from Central Park. Each day it looked stranger than it had the day before. Promptly at 2 P.M the doors were opened and the curious public entered the new Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum for the first time..."

6) Creating Your Dream House. Frank Lloyd Wright created this design for someone who wanted to have three connected houses. Frank Lloyd Wright treated architecture as sculpture. In many of his buildings, block like masses are balanced, repeated and contrasted so they work from every angle, just as a sculpture would. Wright uses massive forums, but it is the way in which these forms interact with the "negative" spaces that surround them, that make his structures so unique. Illustration of the Mrs. D. Jay. Donahue Residence (project) near Scottsdale Arizona...."

Description: "Frank Lloyd Wright and the Wasmuth Drawings. Never has interest in Frank Lloyd Wright’s architectural drawings been greater than it is today. More major publications and exhibitions have recently been devoted to his drawings than to his architecture, and these drawings of the buildings, rather than phonographs, are increasingly used to illustrate his work. This enthusiasm has been reflected in the soaring price (today quoted in four figures) of Ausgefuhrte Bauten und Entwurfe von Frank Lloyd Wright, the folio of drawings that was first published by Ernst Wasmuth of Berlin in 1910, which serves as the basis for this study..."

Description: "Wright on a Jury. After delivering a series of lectures at the New School for Social Research, New York, Frank Lloyd Wright, often called ‘the father of the modern school of architecture,’ has gone to Rio de Janeiro, where he will serve as North America’s representative on the international jury of architects who will select the winning design for the Columbus Memorial Lighthouse n the harbor of Santo Domingo... Today he is considered by many the source of inspiration for the present form of modern architecture and decoration throughout the world.

Lea prize at the Philadelphia Print Club’s 13th annual exhibition of American etching, which will remain on view until May 2. His print, entitled ‘Steamboat at the Landing,’ shows a seated girl gazing out of a half-curtained window toward the river craft in the distance. ‘It is the sort of print,’ says C. H. Bonte in the Philadelphia Inquirer, ‘that the moderns will call old-fashioned, and it is indeed true that the technique of an older day, involving much more cross-hatching than is customary in such work now, is strongly in evidence..."

Description: Article includes Frank Lloyd Wright. "New Talent Fifty Years Ago. Fifty years, or half a century, is a good resounding number, appealing to our delusion that history is a succession of forward steps neatly marked off between boundaries of hundred years, instead of the tangled and contradictory business it turns out to be... We decided that two architects, one ‘advanced’ and one conservative but sound, must represent the whole profession. There was no question as to choice: Frank Lloyd Wright and Bettram Goodhue. Wright, who was forty-one, and had around 200 commissions behind him, had just completed his Robie House, but he was new talent if ever there was any, and he still is, from building to building..."

Description: Review of Books by and about Frank Lloyd Wright. "Taliesin: Bard and Builder. Among the quantity of recent literature published on architecture, it is understandable and justifiable that a considerable portion should be either buy or about perhaps the greatest American master of them all -- Frank Lloyd Wright. What is surprising about the recent spate of Wright books is that instead of being largely interpretive works, as one would expect now that the long and fruitful Life of the man has ended, they are often re-issues of Wright source materials, long out of print or inaccessible. The two publishers most responsible for these publications are Horizon Press and the Prairie School Press, both of whom deserved congratulations..." Includes reviews of 17 books related top Wright.

"Around the time that (Patrick Henry) Bruce was Matisse-ing in Paris, Frank Lloyd Wright was designing some of this country's greatest house (a purely phenomeno-logical circumstances: the only thing the two have in common is a place on this season's agenda). A souvenir of that Wright era will be on view from mid-September to mid-October, when they Richard Feigen Gallery, downtown branch, shows a dozen windows, taken from a pergola of the home he designed for Darwin D. Martin in Buffalo, 1904. The windows are of the casement variety; Wright believed in fenestration that ‘associate the house with out-of-doors,’ and firmly battled for it with old fashion clients who insisted on ‘guillotine’ or double hung windows..."

Description: Husser Residence. "Two fireplaces in mosaic have attractive much attention in Chicago. One is in true mosaic such as the centuries have known: the other is different, and called "mosaic" simply for convenience. It is a new invention, or a new application -- which amounts to the same thing... Frank Lloyd Wright, architect, is responsible for the creation of the innovation, and Orlando Giannnini invented the new glass work... The motive use by Miss Ostertag is based on the study of the wisteria vine in blossom. The thick trunks of the vine climb up either jamb and, branching, lose themselves in a mass of well-drawn foliage above a conventionalized wall. The bunches of flowers are not formally arranged, but seem to grow as the accidents of nature allowed..." Although the article does not mention the Husser Residence by name, the Martin Residence was not designed until 1904. Includes one photograph of the Husser fireplace. (Digital copy.)

Author: Manson, Grant Carpenter

Description: "Frank Lloyd Wright and the Fair of ‘93. In his role as confidant and privileged draftsman to Louis Sullivan, the preparations for the World’s Columbian Fair at Chicago in 1893 were for many months a matter of immediate, practical concern to Frank Lloyd Wright. The design of the Transportation Building, Adler and Sullivan’s agonizingly small share of the total layout, and one which seemed hopelessly engulfed by the title wave of Beaux-Arts revivalism that was destined to be the Fair’s pervading style, was never the less an important commission. How many hours Wright, Sullivan’s talented young up-country protégé of 24, may have devoted to the parti, the constructional elements, the great portals of the project, cannot be precisely determined nor quantitatively analyzed for their effect upon the design as it evolved..."

ARTS IN VIRGINIA

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.

It is intensely personal, it is often arrogant and bitter and egotistic, and it is honest – as Wright’s writing always is..." Original cover price $0.75. (Sweeney 757)

Title: Magazine of Art - May 1951 (Published monthly October through May by The American Federation of Arts, Washington D.C.)

Author: Kaufmann, Edgar, Jr.

Description: "Frank Lloyd Wright at the Strozzi. On closer look the exhibition of Frank Lloyd Wright’s work at the Palazzo Strozzi - which might be thought an international exchange of urbanities – resembles a whirlpool drawing together fragments of civilization and history in irresistible homage to human creativity in art. Through sixty years of unremitting development, Wright has established the humanity of his architecture and the creativity of his imagination. The rebel Wright, we can see now, has never rebelled except against what he believed to be inhuman and unproductive. His architecture is strong enough to dissolve old allegiances and set up those of its own..." Includes photographs of S.C. Johnson Research Tower, Usonian Exhibition House, Midway Garden, Larkin Building, Florida Southern College and drawings of the Golden Triangle and St. Marks (projects).

Description: "Exotic Influences in the Architecture of Frank Lloyd Wright. In the minds of many enthusiastic admirers, almost all the mature works of Frank Lloyd Wright have appeared to be completely free from the influence of other architects either of the distant or the near past. Whenever such influence was suggested it was either dismissed or minimized. The present study intends to show that, like other great artists and great men, he is not an island but a part of the continent - a lofty pinnacle of the ‘maine,’ to paraphrase Donne..."

Title: The Sketch Book - September 1905 (The Sketch Book is published monthly by The Sketch Book Publishing Co., Fine Arts Building, Chicago. Note: This early article was missed by both Sweeney and Langmead and may offer some of the earliest photographs of the Thomas Residence.)

Author: Morris, Alfred

Description: Frank Thomas Residence (1901 - S.067) "A Constant Home. Design and ornament in the home is of such vast importance, that when one comes across a worthy example - one that is consistent and sane - it would surely seem indifferent not to praise. The examples of the exterior and interior applications of design, in the photographs herewith, are ones that have not only a most harmonious consistency, but they also exhibit originality; originality not of the clever sort, but that of dignity and consistent beauty. This house in question is in Oak Park, Illinois, and was designed by that skillful architect and draughtsman, Mr. Frank Lloyd Wright... Mr. Frank Lloyd Wright is original with a reason. His sense of proportion in design is always rational and animated with beauty. His architecture is of a distinct type, harmonious and quietly elegant..." Includes five photographs. Original cover price 10c. See photographs of the Thomas Residence. To read the full article... (Digital and printed copy)

Title: The Sketch Book - December 1905 (The ketch Book is published monthly by The Sketch Book Publishing Co., Fine Arts Building, Chicago. Note: Cover designed by Ralph Fletcher Seymour)

Author: Hosking, Arthur Nicholas

Description: "A Few Books and Their Maker. It is no easy matter to write a truthful criticism of a personal friend's work. Close contact multiplies feelings and emotions. A man’s theories may be more interesting than his work, and vice versa... This fact, however, does not detract from the things of beauty he has created, of which there are a great number... The pages shown... display the high standard chosen when he first launched into the affairs of bookmaking... With all Mr. Seymour's books rarely fine judgment is displayed in the selection of binding material, and the application of the design for the board covers... The main thought of Ralph Fletcher Seymour's work is this: He believes that a man who makes books should be his own designer, his own illustrator and his own constructor of types... The "Academy" of London compared his books to those of William Morris and said that they equaled anything produced in England... He has set down certain formulas for himself alone - he asks no one else to follow - and by these he has consummated beautiful things worthy of praise, and by these we may judge of his future. Includes 13 photographs and illustrations, one being a portrait. (Digital and printed copy)
