An account of Frank Lloyd Wright's relationship with Japan and its arts. It presents information on the nature and extent of Wright's formal and philosophical debt to Japanese art and architecture. Eight primary channels of influence are examined in detail, from Japanese prints to specific individuals and publications, and the evidence of their impact on Wright is illustrated through a mixture of textual and drawn analyses. Wright's friendships and connections with key artistic figures in Chicago in the 1880s and 1890s are revealed and the impact of Japanese culture in America at that time is discussed. Philosophical influences on Wright and their effect on his creative inspiration are explored.
