Highly influential American architect (1867–1959) whose mastery of space, form, and human-centered design revolutionized the field of architecture and earned him a place among the greatest thinkers and artists of the 20th century. Magnificent vintage pearl-finish 7.5 x 9.5 photo of Wright in thought, signed and inscribed in fountain pen, “To Phil—From Frank at 77—with a hope, Taliesin, Aug. 18 46.” Double matted and framed to an overall size of 16 x 18. In fine condition, with the matting covering a trimmed top edge.

In this unique sentiment penned by Wright, ‘Taliesin’ is a reference to his home, which began construction in 1911 on his 600-acre estate that included the Taliesin residence and the Hillside Home School, a coeducation facility founded by his aunts. An amazing portrait with an intimate connection.
