Been Away


Just getting back from several days away.  Until I get a post together over the weekend, here's a little challenge.  Can you tell where I am?  Name the city and place.

Hint:  Let me be frank; if you've been to the Louvre, it may lead to victory.

I won't publish any correct answers so everyone can have a chance to figure it out.

  1. It looks like the Getty to me...

  2. My "guess" is Frank Lloyd Wright's Darwin Martin house in Buffalo. But I must confess there's no way I could have figured it out without your hint! Even though I was at the Louvre in May.

  5. Well, I know that looks like the Winged Victory of Samothrace, but it ain't the Louvre (red brick? no). A replica...where?
    Hope you had fun. Was wondering about you...

  6. Great post. I was thinking Unity Temple in Oak Park, but I think your other reader is correct. I have always loved FLW's urns. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Frank liked old Nike and put her in lots of places, including his own home...I agree that this is in his Oak Park home/studio.

    Ever read "Loving Frank?"
    It's grand. Like his work!

    I ♥ artists, especially the crazy-genius ones. They shape civilization, whether we are ready or not for them to do so. In hindsight we are appreciative, but while they challenge us- most people turn their heads and go pffffft.

    Hope you had a grand time on vacation :)

  13. Is that the Darwin Martin house in Buffalo, NY? I visited over the holidays, and I think I recognize the winged victory in the conservatory!

  14. I wonder, if I am correct and you spent some time here in Buffalo, N.Y., did you get a chance to go on the Buffalo Garden Walk?

  15. You guys are so smart! Rosalind was the first one to get it. I visited my family in Western New York and visited the beautifully restored Darwin Martin complex designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. More pictures will follow.

  20. I'm lagging in my attendance and sitting in the back of the class - but glad to be getting an education anyway!

  23. Just came across your post today. I must complicate you on your amazing shot of Frank Lloyd Wright's Martin Complex.
    The Winged Victory juxtoposed with the distintive urns identify it.

  24. The exterior looks like the Getty in LA, but Winged Victory is at the Louvre, so I do not know, although the planter is reminiscent of FL Wright's style.
    Best...Victoria
