Rights and Restrictions Information
Prints and Photographs Division, Library of Congress, Washington, D.C., 20540-4730
Publication and other forms of distribution: May be restricted. It is necessary to conduct item-specific assessments of the rights associated with the specific pieces. Rights will vary depending
on such factors as whether the work was published in the U.S., whether it was
unpublished (created for purposes other than distribution), and
whether it was created for a client as a "work for hire," taking into account guidelines on the duration of copyright (see: Copyright and Other Restrictions That Apply to Publication/Distribution of Images: Assessing the Risk of Using a P&P Image - How Long Copyrights Last).
While architects traditionally retain the intellectual property
rights for their creative works, in some instances such rights
may have been transferred to the client. Wright transferred the
rights he held to the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation.
In general, the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation claims rights
to his drawings. Contact information for the Foundation is:
