Provenance: Collection of Wilbert and Marilyn Hasbrouck, Chicago, Illinois
Catalog Note: One of Frank Lloyd Wright's most important commissions was the Avery Coonley estate in Riverside, Illinois. In collaboration with George Mann Niedecken, Wright designed the interior decorations for this massive project. The Coonleys were also avid collectors of Wright's Japanese woodblock prints, which he brought back by the hundreds on his travels to Japan. This dramatic cabinet was built to store many of the prints that Wright sold to the Coonleys.
