Mies Van Der Rohe Critical Essays - Paperback

2010, ISBN: 9780870705694

Hardcover, ID: 310157039

San Francisco, Calif.: Wittenborn Art Books, 2010. 48 leaves on heavy stock (250 gsm matte paper; 48 leaves; 10-3/4 x 15-3/8 inches {27 x 39 cm}) housed in a cloth portfolio, and custom box. This is a limited edition facsimile of the manuscript sketchbook by Frank Lloyd Wright which served as the maquette or layout for the famous Wasmuth portfolio of 1910 entitled "Studies and Executed Buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright." It has never been published before and is presented now in a limited edition of 450 numbered copies. The Florence Sketchbook of Frank Lloyd Wright is the freehand maquette or layout for the portfolio entitled Ausgeführte Bauten und Entwürfe von Frank Lloyd Wright (Studies & Executed Buildings by Frank Lloyd Wright) which was published by Ernst Wasmuth in Berlin in 1910. The Wasmuth portfolio contains perspectives and plans on 100 plates for 66 of Wright's buildings and projects between 1893 and 1909. Thirty-six of the plates are of floor plans, printed on tissue paper. These are attached to the other sixty-four, primarily perspectives and renderings on a thick wove paper. The plates in the portfolios were printed from lithographic stones to which the drawings had been transferred. The plates in the portfolio are formal drawings and were produced by Wright together with his associates in Florence, including his son Lloyd, by tracing or recreating extant presentation drawings to a uniform size (16 x 25.25 inches; 406 x 641 mm). The Sketchbook on the other hand contains the master's own freehand drawings or notations for 42 of the eventual plates. Thirty-four of these have actual drawings. Three of the lay-out pages have titles only and another five have borderlines and titles but no sketches. The Sketchbook also contains the first draft of the text that would accompany the portfolio. This text, in the manuscript writing of the master, is reproduced in this facsimile, accompanied by a transcription. The date for the text is first written as "Florence Italy May 1910" but "May" is covered by "June." In June or July, 1910 the architect and his lover Mamah Borthwick Cheney, had moved to Fiesole a suburb of Florence. The Sketchbook is an artifact of the master's year long stay in Europe, from October, 1909 to October, 1910. The first page of the Sketchbook has the stamp of the Berlin firm from whom Wright purchased the then blank sketchbook, probably during November, 1909. The last page with writing has a notation about the S.S. Bluecher. This is the ship on which Wright traveled back to America, arriving in New York City on October 6, 1910 and then 2 days later, in Oak Park, Illinois. There is also a concordance to the plates in the Wasmuth portfolio and to other standard works by Hitchcock and Storrer.

IN STOCK AND IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE FOR SHIPMENT - Flawless copy, brand new, pristine, never opened -- 416 pages. Description: "Carter Wiseman presents an original, readable, and literate overview of the major figures, influential movements, and landmark buildings that have defined American architecture over the past hundred years. In a survey that is "as good . . . As anyone is likely to write . . . Accurate in its facts, wise and fair in its judgments" (New York Times) , he focuses to a large extent on architecture's makers--the commanding figures who by force of personality and sheer artistic ability indelibly influenced its progress: Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd Wright, Philip Johnson, I. M. Pei, Robert Venturi, Louis Kahn, Frank Gehry. The triumph of modernism; the growth of architectural preservation; the eclipse of the practical arts by money, theory, and abstraction; and the uncertain future of architecture in a country that celebrates both individualism and community are just some of the issues addressed in this highly praised work." -- with a bonus offer ., W. W. Norton & Company, 2000, 1947. ("Gene" [Eugene Masselink, Frank Lloyd Wright's personal secretary]), on Taliesin West letterhead, Phoenix, Arizona, December 29, 1947. Oblong 4to, 2 pages (recto and verso). 46 lines. Fine. "Dear Noverre: I fully intended to write you before Christmas.we have been very busy getting into place at Taliesin West. . .the Desert takes a terrific toll each year while we are gone. . . We have a very large group together this year - about sixty in all and including Egyptians, Italians, Germans, French, South American, China, Japan, Hawaii, England, Ceylon, South Africa. . .India, Norway, Palestine, Holland - that the Americans are almost out numbered. . . And there is a lot of work - about sixty houses and buildings - all on the boards however. . .the Johnson Research Tower. . .and the Friedman house in New Mexico. . . We are anticipating the forthcoming solo Forum - January issue - slightly disappointed because there will be no color as we had hoped. . . Sherman sent me a copy of his book which is too damned scientific and technical for me to get excited about. . ." *See - Roger Friedland & Harold Zellman's book "The Fellowship", where there are numerous references to Masselink..

IN STOCK AND IMMEDIATELY AVAILABLE FOR SHIPMENT - FLAWLESS COPY, BRAND NEW, PRISTINE, NEVER OPENED -- - Description: "Essays by Wolf Tegethoff, Richard Pommer, and Fritz Neumeyer. Interview with James Ingo Freed. The rich legacy of scholarly and critical reassessments of Mies van der Rohe continues to grow since his centenary in 1986. This book which had its origins in the historic centennial exhibition at the Museum of Modern Art, presents four provocative new writings on Mies augmented by 150 illustrations from MOMA's Mies van der Rohe Archive and other sources. In his insightful introduction, Franz Schulze, author of the acclaimed 'Mies van der Rohe: A Critical Biography', discusses the reasons why Mies's art and name evokes such a different response today and compares Mies to Frank Lloyd Wright and Le Corbusier in terms of critical fortune. Wolf Tegethoff traces the maturation of Mies's thought during the 1920s, bringing fascinating new research to his examination of this complex European period. Art historian Richard Pommer examines Mies's political ideology and those of other artists of the modern movement in the Weimar years and the first years of the Third Reich. Fritz Neumeyer addresses the issues of tradition and modernity in Mies's life's work through a detailed analysis of several of his earliest buildings. In the concluding piece, architect James Ingo Freed, who studied under Mies at the Illinois Institute of Technology and succeeded him as director of ITT, offers penetrating comments on Mies as an educator and as an architect during his American years.
