On This Day...

A DAILY FACTOID OF OUR ART HISTORY

Feb. 2

Architect Taylor A. Woolley died on this day (1965) after a career building churches, buildings, and homes in Utah. He began his professional life with the firm of Frank Llloyd Wright, and in 1909 travelled with Wright to Italy to work on what would be one of the most important books about architecture of the century, Ausgeführte Bauten und Entwürfe (the Wasmuth Portfolio). Woolley worked for Wright in the Oak Park Studio and the early days of Taliesin I. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Taylor_Woolley
