Frank Lloyd Wright ALS matted and framed to Lewis Mumford 61 x 37 cm. ; Discusses the Guggenheim Museum. Author: Wright, Frank Lloyd Title: Frank Lloyd Wright ALS matted and framed to Lewis Mumford 61 x 37 cm. ; Discusses the Guggenheim Museum Publication: Taliesin: November 9, 1931. Description: Taliesin: November 9, 1931. Typed letter, 45 x 20 cm. To friend and architectural critic, Lewis Mumford. My dear Lewis: I’ve read `The Brown Decade’ you so kindly sent me and it is a useful work in your splendid style. I didn’t agree in total but admire and respect…… The Guggenheim has asked me for a recommendation for the new work she wants to do and I gave my best – but wrote her what I though of her thesis. You know what I must think about that. Enclosed is a copy of what I think about it for your files if you care for it. ” Wright would later accept the contract to build the Guggenheim three years later in 1943: Hilla Rebay, the curator stated to Wright that he wanted to build, “A temple of spirit, a monument. ” The balance of the letter notes his apology to Mumford for missing a meeting with him, his reading of Mumford’s critique of the Metropolitan Museum in the New Yorker Magazine, an invitation to Mumford to visit that winter: and perhaps most poignantly — “And Lewis, please don’t ever fall out with me. I should be afraid of you. Fine condition, matted and gilt framed — suitable for hanging. Subject: Architecture, Social Life. Antiquarian Booksellers’ Association of America.
