Frank Lloyd Wright's Dana-Thomas House, from Masterpieces, a film by Michael Miner
DVD features 20 minute documentary and 58 minutes of interview extras, footage extras and deleted scenes.
By around 1900, Frank Lloyd Wright was completing the final designs for the buildings which would later become known as his "Oak Park" period.
He now focused on a new building style "The Prairie School," structures whose horizontal profiles were to fit naturally into the flat terrain of the midwestern prairie.
One of the earliest examples of a Wright Prairie School building, and certainly the grandest, was the house designed for wealthy Susan Lawrence Dana in 1902. It was 12,000 square feet in size, extraordinarily opulent, and featured the largest collection of custom designed furniture and art glass ever found within a single Wright structure.
After a meticulous restoration, and with a collection that includes nearly all of its original artifacts, the magnificent Dana House can now be rightly called The Masterpiece of the Prairie School era."
