The photographs are beautiful--but the essay is stunning 28. Mai 2011
Von Dennis Witmer - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The idea of Louis Sullivan--what's the idea? Sullivan invented the cliché "Form follows function", an idea that has changed the world--one he implemented into his beautiful architecture, as he used the new materials of steel and terra cotta to design the elegant buildings of the last few decades of the 19th century, especially in Chicago. However, when one of his buildings collapsed, so did his reputation, and he grew old in disgrace, designing small Midwestern banks while pursuing the avocation of alcoholism.

John Szarkowski, the greatest critic and writer that photography has ever known, photographed the work of Louis Sullivan while a young man, while on a Guggenheim Fellowship, which resulted in the publication of the first edition of this book in the 1950s. The first sentence of the preface to the new edition "Old men should not revise young men's work; they are sure to make a botch of it," introduces one of the most marvelous stories every told about the workings of the world of photography in the 20th century--a wonderful story of the old and the young--a must read for anyone hoping to understand how Szarkowski became himself.

The first edition of this book almost failed to be published, and the second edition remains virtually unknown--my first impression of the book was that it was a tribute to a great curator, a consolation prize for the years he spent in the collections of MOMA rather than on the streets as a photographer, making work--but the story he tells in the new preface is something more--the passing of blessings from the old to the young--and the glory of the young finding their power.

A visual treat and treatise on early 20th century architecture 12. Juli 2008
Von J Martin Jellinek - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
The Idea of Louis Sullivan was first published in the 1950s and highlights the architecture of one of the mavericks of skyscraper architecture. The text gives a brief biography of Mr. Sullivan's life. The rest of the book consists of excerpts from various texts dealing with architecture and the challenges of leaving the mainstream. This text is interesting, but sometimes in is a bit too removed from the original text, leaving the reader trying to understand what the text is saying. However, the photography is amazing. The viewer is treated to crystal clear black and white photography which gives us insight into Sullivan's work. The pictures are both close ups and overviews. They show us the detailed work of an architect who understood that function really does determine the form of a building. He also understood that height is what makes skyscrapers special and emphasized this in strong vertical lines, as we can see from the more distant views. Sullivan fought the classical revival, which was all the rage of his times, and used a combination of heavy and solid Romanesque architecture with art nouveau decoration. The result is both stunning and unique.

This volumes makes a great coffee table book since it's considerable strength is visual.
As good as the first edition 27. März 2012
Von lex cordis - Veröffentlicht auf
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
The photographs compare very favorably with the reproduction of the first edition from the 50s. This was my main concern. They are a bit clearer and the whites a bit whiter, but beautiful.

1956 the centenary of Sullivan's birth was the occasion of the interaction between some outstanding art photographers and his buildings.

This of course is the great MOMA curator and photographer Szarkowski photographing Sullivans. Wright, Sullivan's aide, said his were the best photos of Sullivans. Szarkowski's photos also have the unusual element of seeing the buildings interacting with their surroundings. The text is marvelous. This is a fantastic buy. I wouldn't wait until it goes out of print and costs hundreds as seems to be happening with photo books these days.
Lovely photos of Sullivan's buildings and the ornament he used on them. 10. Juni 2015

This must be a pretty good book because I own 3 of them in my library! Seriously, I like anything designed by Sullivan and I like most things designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, his employee. We took a trip to Chicago and searched for many Sullivan buildings that were still standing and took photos of these beautiful creations. His ornaments are lovely - they are the curlicues that are the building's fancy work that people stand in awe and look at. Nobody did ornament better than Sullivan!
