Julie L. Sloan is the preeminent authority on Wright's leaded glass and a noted stained-glass scholar and conservator. She has taught at Columbia University, Williams College, and Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute. David G. De Long, author of the introduction, is an architectural historian and internationally known expert on Wright. Sloan went in-depth into the history of the early period but missed the very early co-authored commissions and she incorrectly came to a 'conclusion' with her 'matrix's" of charts showing 'shapes he used in artglass' and the periods used. I doubt if she went out and actually saw alot of the 'Wright buildings' of the 40's and late 50's which have artglass in them.

Light Screens also uncovers the influences on Wright's ornament- from Japonisme . A companion to this catalogue is Julie L. Sloan, Light Screens: The Complete Leaded-Glass Windows of Frank Lloyd Wright.

Light Screens also uncovers the influences on Wright's ornament- from Japonisme to Friedrich Froebel's educational exercises- and presents invaluable insights on period terms for Wright's glass, on his writings about it, on how glass was made in his time, and on claims for his assistants' authorship of certain designs. Including illustrations made especially for this book, Sloan shows how Wright, in her words, expanded the frontiers of stained glass in both its use and its design.

Visionary and prolific, Frank Lloyd Wright conceived leaded-glass windows for almost every one of his buildings between 1885 and 1923, his most celebrated years. His output was prodigious: an estimated 4,365 window designs for over 160 structures, more than 100 of which were realized. Here, Julie L. Sloan presents the largest gathering of these windows ever published.In this accessibly written, impressively researched volume, Sloan shows how Wright revolutionized a centuries-old art form. With the boldly abstract glass he called "light screens," he distanced himself from Louis Comfort Tiffany and John La Farge and invented a fully modern language of design. Wright's windows were integral to his architectural conceptions, as Sloan demonstrates with a wealth of illustrations-- including rarely seen drawings and on-site photographs made especially for this book. In recreating the master's integration of his windows into his structures, the author brings to life such lavish landmarks as the Susan Lawrence Dana house, the Darwin D. Martin complex, and Hollyhock House, while she traces three phases in Wright's evolving language of geometric patterns.According to Sloan, the master's vision grew from the curvilinear Queen Anne-style motifs of his earliest glass; through the chevrons, rectangles, and autumnal palette of his famed Prairie-period windows; to the jazzy asymmetries, dancing triangles, and primary colors of his 1911-23 work, when vanguard European art and architecture helped inspire his most joyous, innovative light screens. In the same years, Wright expanded his use of glass from the single opening to the casement, the clerestory, and the skylight. "While providing harmonious ornament, control of illumination, and privacy," Sloan writes, these ensembles of intricately patterned glass "negotiate the boundaries between interior space and exterior view."Light Screens proposes a structuralist analysis of Wright's evolving typology of geometric forms and provides a cogent art-historical summary of what shaped them. Concise chapters describe the impact on Wright's glass of the Gothic Revival and Arts and Crafts movements, Japonisme, and Friedrich Froebel's educational exercises. Sloan also explains Wright's design theories and elliptical writings on glass. And she includes useful reconstructions and little-known primary-data: for example, on period terms and fabrication techniques for ornamental glass, and on Wright's clients, assistants, and suppliers. Such rich detail commends this book to connoisseurs and collectors of 19th- and 20th-century glass and modern design alike. Groundbreaking in content and commanding in scope, it is essential reading for scholars and enthusiasts of Wright.

Beautiful book

This book is just the top of the line for all FLLW lover.

Gee for this good of an indepth book it's missing some of Mr. Wrights art glass work. It appears to the author SLOAN of the book that Mr. Wright's executed art glass ended in 1924. HOW UNTRUE. What about the artglass in the Southern Florida University chapel? Or what about the Greek church in Madison Wisconsin? or what about the 1954 Beth Shalom Synagogue in Elkins Park, PA....the artglass above the pulpit??? GEE GOOD research on the rest of it though.....lots of detail but she didn't do a good job on the rest of it.....by the way a sketch in Wright's drawings was done for the Greek Church in Madison, Wisc. originally to be christian "figurines"...the only sketch by Wright in artglass that was realistic other than his unexecuted "waterlilies" artglass that is known of and printed in color form today on rugs and prints. And gee I didn't even spend time to research this data, it was all known to me as an architect, & enthusiast. I'm also a member of the FLLW conservancy, FLLW Home & studio, Taliesin Fellows, and Taliesin Associates member.

The NY church mentioned above has artglass over the pulpit, the Florida campus 'little chapel' narthex is entirely artglass, as is the little dome inside the now public area of the Guggenheim in NY. I also haven't seen personally but have heard there is artglass even at Marin county building in the ceiling domes. I hope someday to go out there and look for myself. I'm sure I missed a few others herein but that was my main point of the book.

Sloan went in-depth into the history of the early period but missed the very early co-authored commissions and she incorrectly came to a 'conclusion' with her 'matrix's" of charts showing 'shapes he used in artglass' and the periods used.

I doubt if she went out and actually saw alot of the 'Wright buildings' of the 40's and late 50's which have artglass in them. Her remark in the book prologue that no 'artglass' of FLLW's designs was ever executed after 1923 with the Charles Ennis home in LA.
Wrong! A mere mentioning at the very end of the book isn't good enough in it's few dedicated pages - those buildings needed to be given much more attention and also being written about. The original patterns FLLW designed for the Madison Unitarian Meeting House even though unexecuted , he still did an interesting design on the built windows of the pulpit also. To envision what the church pulpit glass may have looked like one needs to travel to Spring Green, WI and see the St. Johns Catholic Church that was designed by Taliesin Architects, and see the pulpit there, artglass done by Susan Jacobs Lockhart of Taliesin.

Sloan should stick to what she is good at -'research', and not draw her own conclusions or show anything more than presenting the data itself and sticking to the artglass subject which she seemed to do well at. Some minor errors but overall an informative and well done book with alot of new material and seldom seen photos and artglass designs, details, and background. I consider this the starter book for enthusiasts and for well read researchers they will have to wait a little while until some newer evidence comes out that will reshape the front-end of her books findings.

For non-architects who do books....CLUE: next time do more thorough research 'suppositions' since it makes your efforts and detailed work look shabby for so lengthy of detailed data excerpted in your book. Good luck next time and PLEASE add a GOOD redone 2nd edition.

This is a very well researched, well presented analysis of FLW's windows. It speaks for itself. The pictures are well chosen and do a very good job of illustrating the books themes and analysis.
