The treasure trove that is Wright at Artstor almost makes up---or more than makes up ?---for the loss of drawings (presented in full color) at the Heritage auctions of a couple of years back.

It is rewarding to have the Conservancy's own take on this boon to Wright studies---with precautionary examples of the ways in which the drawings and the resulting structures can differ.

(I'm not sure I understand why scans of good photographs would suffer in resolution---unless it was microfilm, rather than negatives or prints, that was scanned ?)

2021 will stand as a banner year for Wright scholarship, I would think . . .
