  • Title: A Frank Lloyd Wright
  • Date: 1979/1979
  • Physical Dimensions: w39 x h39 in
  • Painter: Juan Carlos Liberti
  • Description: Self-taught, Liberti has explored the Surrealist vernacular since 1970, drawing on the richness of private, imaginary worlds in paintings characterized by coolly atmospheric light and enigmatic figures. This painting pays surreal homage to the American architect, whose work is celebrated for its formal abstraction and intrinsic geometries, as seen in his iconic design of the Solomon R. Guggenheim Museum in New York. Here, Liberti distills Wright’s smooth surfaces and spatial volumes, imbuing the windowless towers with an almost mystical, majestic feeling. -Text by Abigail McEwen
