Rare Taliesin I and II Photographic Proofs Acquired
Rare Taliesin I and II Photographic Proofs Acquired at the WHS. "...An exceptional collection of early photographic proofs of Taliesin, architect Frank Lloyd Wright's Wisconsin home and studio outside of Spring Green, provides a rare glimpse of the structure in its earliest incarnations. Wright redesigned and rebuilt Taliesin numerous times during his lifetime. These changes, whether a result of fire or an outgrowth of Wright's ever-evolving philosophy about domestic architecture, often went undocumented photographically — especially the earliest iterations of the building, Taliesin I (1911-1914) and Taliesin II (1915-1925). These photographs document the celebrated structure from late 1911 to circa 1924."
