Web Site for Eric Lloyd Wright:
Thanks to Suzanne Graeber who alerted us to her interview with Eric Lloyd Wright, who designed Anaïs Nin’s House of Light in Silverlake. Eric Lloyd Wright was Rupert Pole’s half -brother. His web site can be found at http://www.elwright.net/. When this home was written up a few years ago by the LA Times, our site provided the writer of the piece with our copy of an Architectural Record which had pictures of this beautiful home and mesmerizing copy by Barbara Kraft. We knew her name was familiar when friends raved about her recent memoir (published by Sky Blue Press but everyone I talk to wish it was available in a printed edition) but until I began reading this amazing memoir, I didn’t connect the writer of the earlier piece with the Architectural Record Here is information from an earlier entry in our blog.
You can read about this storied home in a 1984 copy of Architectural Record that has a beautiful spread of photos as well as an article by Barbara Kraft,on the history of Anaïs’s House of Light.
The home also appeared in a 1999 Architectural Record, Houses of the Century issue, Rupert and Anaïs’s home was chosen as one of the houses of the “sixties” although only a small photo and a little drawing of Anaïs appeared (about a half page).
