This former Met Bulletin focuses on one of America's foremost masters of architecture, Frank Lloyd Wright (American, 1867–1959). Fewer architects have captivated the American imagination like Wright. Born in 1867 in Richland, Wisconsin, Wright grew up in an America still very much influenced by the Jeffersonian ideal of an agrarian society. In many ways he remained throughout his life a nineteenth-century man, for like Emerson and Whitman, he had a great love for nature. Wright began his career in Chicago in 1887, but his real architectural education was the five years spent with Louis Sullivan, whose office he joined as a draftsman in 1888. In his lifetime, Frank Lloyd Wright was vocal and often controversial in his views concerning the direction that American art and architecture should follow. The Wright design collection in The American Wing attests to the continuing power of his work to challenge our perceptions of American art.
