Taliesin Talks—Frank Lloyd Wright’s Encounters with Japan

August 5, 2020
Taliesin West

Frank Lloyd Wright admitted to only three influences: Louis Sullivan, the Froebel Gifts and the Japanese print. This Taliesin Talk will focus on the latter and look at how the principles Wright discovered underlying this ephemeral popular art form offer lessons far beyond the medium.

If you missed the Live Facebook Zoom Taliesin Talk focusing on Wright’s Encounters with Japan, you can watch it here:
