Plate XV from 'Ausgeführte Bauten und Entwürfe von Frank Lloyd Wright'

Berlin, Ernst Wasmuth A.G., 1910.

A lithograph printed on white paper (202 × 609 mm); two vertical creases; paper a little foxed, with the left-hand portion a little discoloured; in very good 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 24 in 'Studies and Executed Buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright' (New York, Rizzoli, 1998): 'Perspective view of Thomas P. Hardy house, Racine, Wisconsin'.
