Fallingwater sent me a very prompt reply. They said they had no record of The Rock being on display there. Furthermore, Franklin Toker's Fallingwater Rising says that the painting was displayed at eit ...

The Art Institute's page on the work says it was commissioned by the Kaufmanns and was on display at Fallingwater. The article you cited tells a slightly different story, but we know it belonged to th ...

SDR,

Thank you for the link to the art exhibit. I'm excited there's a catalogue for it as I'm fascinated by Blume's Surrealism.

Looking at the Art Institute's website, the painting is apparently ...

It wasn't a match for the Claremont for sure. But at least it seemed to float on its own alone. One got the impression it was a separate pavilion with a small attachment to the main building. It also ...

Meisolus mentioned a book he referred to as the little Wasmuth. Does anyone know what was the exact name of the book, the name of the publisher, and publication date?


When Wright published the W ...

I see something linear inside the terminals as well. I'm hoping to get some more information. A friend of mine did a lot of digging into the Universal Portland Cement Company and found a lot of great ...

SDR,

I added the photo to my post above. It's on the first page as well, along with the little bit of drawings we have for it. Thank you for the kind words!

I had wondered if they might be elect ...

Before I get to the items I'm st ...
