Learning from Frank Furness: Louis Sullivan in 1873

13 21 October 2012

Currently in read only mode, sorry about that, please try again in a few hours.

This exhibition is centered on Furness’s most important piece of furniture, a massive desk he designed for his older brother in 1870–71. Its horseshoe arch, stylized patterns, and dynamic interplay of intaglio and relief carving reflect Furness’s bold combination of form and elaborate detail that he used in his buildings. A preparatory drawing for the desk will be exhibited in addition to an accompanying bookcase also designed by Furness.
