Ceiling detail of the Carlton Wall house   Save
Joe Munroe Archive
Description: 1942 photograph taken by Joe Munroe of the living room ceiling of the Carlton Wall house, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright. The house is one of Wright's Usonian-style homes, built with the goal of using natural light and bringing the outside in--an effect which is clearly demonstrated with the large windows and plants seen here. Joe Munroe's career began in 1939 at the Cranbrook Academy of Art. He served in the Air Force during World War II and then joined Cincinnati-based Farm Quarterly magazine. Though raised in Detroit, agriculture became an important subject of Joe's photographs. He moved to California in 1955 and free-lanced, taking magazine assignments and selling his own work.
