In this new Eye on Art title, author Don Nardo explores the life and work of American architect Frank Lloyd Wright, who is widely viewed as one of the most innovative and influential architects of the late 1800s and early 1900s. Nardo includes fascinating details of Lloyd's life, including his childhood in a large family in Wisconsin, his ambition as a young man, his move to Chicago to become a great architect, his vision for a new "American" architecture, and his marriages and love affairs. Wright's work is described in vivid detail and full color images of his homes and buildings help bring the descriptions to life.
"Written for middle school to high school age students, the Eye on Art Series from Lucent Books provides an in-depth look into the various art movements. What makes this series special for students, however, are the beautiful full-color pictures that appear on nearly every page and the sidebars that discuss important aspects of the arts in further detail. This set is highly recommended for school and public libraries."
