Sprite Holding Cubes Sculpture 15"
For Midway Gardens in Chicago (1913; demolished 1929), a fashionable entertainment complex, Wright created a magical combination of architecture, furniture, sculpture and murals. In collaboration with the sculptor, Alfonso Iannelli, a series of "Sprite" sculptures were created; dozens were cast to adorn walls and walkways. This "Sprite Holding Two Cubes" is representative of one of three that adorned the Gardens. Made of hand-cast resin and recommended for indoor use only. 14-1/2"h x 3-5/8"w x 4"d.
