Motawi Tileworks Collection

In 1927, Frank Lloyd Wright submitted a series of cover designs for Liberty Magazine. All four designs were rejected by the editors at the time who deemed them too “radical” and the covers were never published. One of those designs, SaguaroForms and Cactus Flowers, depicted Wright’s interpretation of a desert landscape. Although initially disregarded, the image is now one of Wright’s most popular designs and was later transformed into a stained-glass feature of Arizona’s famous Biltmore Hotel lobby.
