"The Guggenheim Museum ... is widely considered his best (and certainly most memorable)work." ... above a photo of Fallingwater!

I have a soft spot in my heart for Guggenheim, but I would not put it at the top of the list.

I can see why Sara Barnes (the author of the article) screwed up the date on Fallingwater (the commission of which came in 1935), but I've no idea how she f-ed up the date on Guggenheim commission. 1939? How did that happen? And later on, writing that the commission took "15 years"... ok, that brings the commission date down to 1944. Followed by the information that Rebay first wrote to Wright on June 1, 1943.

editors, editors.
