WRIGHT, Frank Lloyd
Plate XXXIb from 'Ausgeführte Bauten und Entwürfe von Frank Lloyd Wright'
Berlin: Ernst Wasmuth A.G., 1910. Berlin, Ernst Wasmuth A.G., 1910. A lithograph printed on cream card (400 × 640 mm), with the blind-stamp of Frank Lloyd Wright; card a little foxed; creases to the bottom left-hand and top right-hand corners (well clear of the printed surface), with minimal chipping to the latter; in excellent condition. 'In 1910-11 the distinguished German architectural publisher Ernst Wasmuth issued a pair of elegant portfolios covering the work of Frank Lloyd Wright to date. Among the most important architectural manifestoes of the twentieth century, the "Wasmuth folios" had enormous influence on the architects of the day, and have since become world famous'. Many copies of the portfolio were destroyed in a fire at Wright's Wisconsin home in August 1914, and many surviving plates suffered water damage. This plate is reproduced as Plate 47 in 'Studies and Executed Buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright' (New York, Rizzoli, 1998): it is one of four under the heading 'General view of a city dwelling of Mrs Susan L. Dana, Springfield, Illinois, 1899'.
