Picture 3 A series of two lectures on the masters of American architecture organized by the Graycliff Conservancy will begin with a lecture on Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright on Thursday, April 21, 2011 at 7 pm, in the auditorium of the Burchfield-Penney Art Center at 1300 Elmwood Ave in Buffalo, NY.

The illustrated lecture will be given by Dr. Robert Twombly, the noted scholar and author of numerous books on Sullivan and Wright, as well as related topics such as H.H. Richard and Frederick Law Olmsted. More details after the jump...

 
Renowned for his charm, as well as depth of knowledge of this subject matter, Dr. Twombly will discuss both the personal relationship between Sullivan and Wright, as well as the impact this relationship had on their architectural styles. Twombly is the author of such books as Frank Lloyd Wright: His Life and His Architecture; Louis Sullivan: The Poetry of Architecture; Frank Lloyd Wright: Essential Texts; Frank Lloyd Wright: An interpretive biography; Louis Sullivan: The Public Papers; Frederick Law Olmsted: Essential Texts and the forthcoming Henry Hobson Richardson: His Life and Work from W.H. Norton, among others. Dr. Twombly teaches architectural history at the City University of New York.
 
This lecture is presented with support from Hodgson Russ LLC, the law firm that owns, and has restored the Guaranty Building in downtown Buffalo, widely considered one of Louis Sullivan’s most important architectural designs. The New York State Council on the Arts has provided additional support.
 
The second lecture in the series will be given by Jeffrey Ochsner, Ph.D., on the subject of the architecture of H.H. Richardson in September. Dr. Ochsner is the author of the seminal H. H. Richardson: Complete Architectural Works. This lecture will also take place at the Burchfield Penney Art Center; the Graycliff Conservancy is very pleased to acknowledge their help and cooperation. Special thanks also the the Richardson Center Corporation for their assistance with these lectures.
 
Admission for each talk will be $10; or $5 for Graycliff and/or Burchfield Penney Art Center members and volunteers. No reservations are necessary. More info here.
