Frank Lloyd Wright (1867-1959) is recognized world-wide as one of the greatest architects of the twentieth century.
In 1927, Wright submitted a series of cover designs for Liberty Magazine. All four designs were rejected by the editors at the time who deemed them too “radical” and the covers were never published. One of those designs, Saguaro Forms and Cactus Flowers, depicts Wright’s interpretation of a desert landscape. Although initially disregarded, the image is now one of Wright’s most popular designs and was later transformed into a stained-glass feature of Arizona’s famous Biltmore Hotel lobby.
