Wright and the Architecture of Japanese Prints

date of exhibition: 2005/10/22 - 2006/01/22
institution: The Hammer Museum (The Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Culture Center)
type of exhibition: kolektivní

This exhibition explores architect Frank Lloyd Wright’s great passion for Japanese woodblock prints, which he collected and sold throughout his career. While highlighting works by some of the most celebrated Japanese print artists from the 18th and 19th centuries, this exhibition also offers insight into this source of inspiration for Wright’s architecture. Drawn primarily from the Grunwald Center for the Graphic Art’s Frank Lloyd Wright Japanese Print Collection, the exhibition will also include rare loans from the Norton Simon Museum, the Art Institute of Chicago, the Getty Research Institute, and the Beverly Hills Public Library.
