For Midway Gardens in Chicago , a fashionable entertainment complex, Wright created a magical combination of architecture, furniture, sculpture and murals. In collaboration with the sculptor, Alfonso Iannelli, a series of "Sprite" sculptures were created; dozens were cast to adorn walls and walkways. 

Midway Gardens was an indoor-outdoor entertainment complex located on Chicago’s south side  (1913; demolished 1929) the complex was ornamented with concrete panels, hand-painted wall murals, lighting, and tableware all designed by Frank Lloyd Wright.

Working in collaboration with sculptor Alfonso Iannelli, a group of various concrete figures, male and female, were sculpted and stood atop the building’s street façades. This "Poetry Nymph" is representative of one of those that adorned the Gardens.

Recommended for indoor use only.

Made of cold cast resin. Hand painted.

L: 5.25" x W: 5" x H: 18.5"
