Lecture: John Storrs and American Architecture of His Day

In conjunction with the exhibition John Storrs: Machine Age Modernist

John Storrs (1885–1956) looked to architecture for inspiration. Louis Sullivan and Frank Lloyd Wright influenced his thinking, as did avant-garde artists of his time. In this lecture, Carol Krinsky, Professor of Art History, New York University, will discuss works which recall early skyscrapers as well as others that were composed from abstract geometric forms.
