Frank Lloyd Wright on Beauty

On the drive back from Vancouver B.C. we listened to an episode of 99% Invisible about Frank Lloyd Wright and his Usonian homes and the topic of beauty came up again. I’ve been thinking a lot about this and I really loved what he had to say about the importance of surrounding yourself with beauty and good design.

The longer I live the more beautiful life becomes. If you foolishly ignore beauty, you will soon find yourself without it. Your life will be impoverished. But if you invest in beauty, it will remain with you all the days of your life.

I wish I knew the origin of this photograph. Is it authentic vintage? If so, there is something so wonderfully modern day about it to me. I wish I knew more about it, even doing a Google Image search yielded only more results on Pinterest.
