FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT CALLS HIS WORK "THE ONLY TRULY AMERICAN EXPRESSION IN THE ART OF ARCHITECTURE"
FRANK LLOYD WRIGHT.Extremely rare Partly Printed DS: "Frank Lloyd Wright Architect", 1p, 5½x8½. No date, no place. An application for information to be published in a directory.Headed: "Business or Professional Record". In the upper portion, which asks for "data to enable the editor to do complete justice to your business or professional record", Wright has written, in full: "Work characterized as 'New School of Middle West' in America -- Abroad, as the architecture of the 'Prairie Dimension' -- the only truly American expression in the art of Architecture. Many foreign publications of distinction publish the work and European architects manifest increasing interest in it." Wright has also written "None" twice in columns asking for information on being an officer or director of a corporation and the office or position occupied. At the bottom of the form is a line that reads "Please enclose your business card or other printed matter in order that spelling of names may be verified." Beneath it, Wright has added "(Never had one!)". Wright was the American architect, chief theorist and practitioner of the "Prairie School" of architecture. The style was typified by houses with low-pitched roofs and extended lines that blended into the landscape. It epitomized Wright's idea of "organic architecture", which "proceeds, persists, creates, according to the nature of man and his circumstances as they both change." The creator of about 1,000 structures is also noted for his innovative designs for the Imperial Hotel (Tokyo) and the Guggenheim Museum (New York City). Letters or documents by Frank Lloyd Wright rarely appear on the market. This document bears 50 words in his hand! Verso is backed with conservator's paper. Lightly soiled at lower right corner, minor paper loss touches the "ad" in "had" in the business card answer. Overall, fine condition.
