From the Inside Flap
This exquisite look at Frank Lloyd Wright's windows, along with a representation of his limited production of light fixtures, is the first comprehensive study on the subject. Thomas A. Heinz features not only Wright's iridescent stained glass but a sweeping range of his lightscreens, Wright's term for his designs that capture the essence of both light and shadow. The screens were not intended to obscure the view out the window but to modify and focus it through framing. It was Wright's abstraction of patterns and geometry from nature--plants and flowers--that resulted in the most imaginative stained-glass designs that had ever been seen up to his time. But while he is best known for his stained glass set in metal frames, he also created screens in cut wood, concrete, and even terra-cotta. In fact, Wright did not use the glass-and-metal system after 1924, though he continued to design lightscreens. In captivating color photography and well-researched commentary, Mr. Heinz captures the essence of Frank Lloyd Wright's genius, his fascination with the interplay of light and shadow--throughout the day and with the changing seasons.
