Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is recognized world-wide as one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century. His work heralded a new thinking in architecture, using innovation in design and engineering made possible by newly developed technology and materials. His creative ability extended far beyond the border of architecture to graphic design, furniture, art glass, textiles, and decorative elements for the home.
“I love colored pencils. They are intimately associated with my sense of happiness, and have been since childhood.” In addition to being an accomplished architect, Wright was also a proficient illustrator. He was still drawing with panache at 91; his last perspective drawing was signed just days before his death, in April 1959. After the architect passed, this artful lineup of colored pencils was discovered on his desk.
