Frank Lloyd Wright and the House Beautiful


Frank Lloyd Wright “Robie Chair” found at Eurstyle

“[Frank Lloyd Wright] saw the ideal home as ‘a complete work of art, in itself as expressive and beautiful and more intimately related to life, than anything detached such as sculpture or painting,’ he wrote in 1955 for the magazine House Beautiful (itself named for a concept of social and architectural reform aimed at the enhancement of living).

“You get an engrossingly detailed picture of how he achieved his vision in ‘Frank Lloyd Wright and the House Beautiful’ at the Portland Museum of Art. The show displays more than 100 examples of his furniture, metalwork, textiles, plans, drawings and publications, along with photographs of particular interiors.”
