Lecture: Marion Mahony Griffin: Rendering the Grand Variety of Natures Grace
Marion Mahony Griffin is known for a magnificent drafting style incorporating densely treed landscapes into architectural presentation drawings. She was Frank Lloyd Wrights chief draftsperson for fourteen years before embarking on a career with her husband Walter Burley Griffin that catapulted them from Chicago to Australia in 1914 after winning an international competition to design the capital city of Canberra. Author Debora Wood examines the trajectory of Marions graphic artfrom children's book illustrations and architectural renderings to an exquisite series of Australian Forest Portraits. Marions drawing methods and her inventive adaptation of photo-reproduction processes will be discussed.
