In Partnership with Art Institute of Chicago.
Frank Lloyd Wright lent Japanese prints to the Art Institute consistently, but his most important exhibition was a large show of prints he mounted at the museum in 1908 with an installation of specially designed frames and furniture. Clarence Buckingham, whose name graces the Japanese print gallery at the Art Institute, purchased several prints from Frank Lloyd Wright for his personal collection in 1911. This 2017 exhibition comprises Japanese prints originally purchased from Frank Lloyd Wright, photos of the 1908 exhibition, as well as presentation drawings by Wright and his studio.
