DS Japanese Collection Katagami 2 Machine Woven Rug
Japanese prints were at the center of Wright’s attraction to Japan, but his interest in and knowledge of Japanese arts and culture were extensive and enduring. He found much to admire in this country he once described as “the most romantic, artistic, nature inspired country on earth.”
In The Japanese Print: An Interpretation, a treatise on Japanese aesthetics he published in 1912, he wrote, “The most important fact to realize in this study is that, with all its informal grace, Japanese art is a thoroughly structural art…It is always, whatever else it is or is not, structural.” He goes on to emphasize that “structure is at the very beginning of any knowledge of design” and that structure designates “an organic form, an organization in a very definite manner of parts or elements into a larger unity a vital whole” —a characteristic inherent in all the arts of Japan and the basis of Wright’s own architecture.
