Judith York Newman- Architect/Director

A visual journey to the many architectural creations over an amazing span of 56 years beginning in 1901 in Chicago.

This exhibition  and sale covers a full range of Wright’s career in two formats. The Wasmuth Folio considered an aesthetic treasure trove of the earlier work is a valuable collection of lithographs. Subtle line drawings in brown, gray and even gold ink are convincing evidence of the impact of the Japanese print on Wright’s work. Not only is there a similarity in the sensibility of the design but the composition including the views and placement are strikingly similar.Historic woodcuts from Kyoto are on view as is dinnerware designed for the Imperial Hotel in Tokyo.

Also apparent is the wide geographic scope of Wright’s work from the early Prairie Houses in Illinois to architecture in Buffalo, Wisconsin, Arizona,  Montana and California. These  color prints are from the Selected Drawings Portfolios.
