Typed letter, signed by Wright's secretary Eugene Masselink to Isabelle Martin, on the Frank Lloyd Wright Taliesen letterhead. The letter was written on May 26th, 1941 and reads as follows: "Dear Mrs. Martin: Mr. Wright asked me to write to say that the screens have arrived and are in fine condition on exhibition in our galleries. We have had one offer of five hundred dollars for the screens buy hope for higher bidders during the early summer." An interesting letter between Wright and one of his clients. "During a fallow period in Wright's career, Martin commissioned him to design a summer home, Graycliff, stressing that this house was to conform to Isabel's desires. The result was one of Wright's most important mid-career designs, taking extensive advantage of Graycliff's location on a bluff overlooking Lake Erie. The largest of the three buildings at Graycliff, the Isabelle R. Martin House, is transparent, allowing views of the lake through the house. Terraces and cantilevered balconies enhance the organic nature of the buildings." (Wikipedia)The letter is in excellent condition with normal folds and has been nicely matted and framed. It came from the personal collection of an architect, who had it displayed. A nice piece of Wright ephemera, attractively presented. Due to the large size international shipping may incur extra costs. Bookseller Inventory #
