Frank Lloyd Wright and Taliesin
Taliesin -- the country estate built by Frank Lloyd Wright between 1911 and 1959 -- has been a self-sufficient farm complex, a boarding school, a world-class architectural studio, and a fellowship for the study of architecture. What was it like to be a part of this vibrant community, to work in close association with the preeminent American architect?
Author Frances Nemtin, currently the long-time manager and designer of the Taliesin flower gardens, joined the fellowship in 1946 after she met Wright while arranging a show of his work. Rich in anecdote and precise in description, her charmingly discursive tour of the fellowship includes rarely seen photographs and paintings from the fellowship archives evoking the beauty of Taliesin in all seasons, and the excitement of living in proximity to genius.
