About this artwork
Known as an architect, design educator and preservationist who championed the work of Louis H. Sullivan, this collection documents both Crombie’s own designs as well as his Sullivan-related studies. The latter group includes stencils, wallpapers, drawings, photographs, and paper files.
Collections may be accessed in the Franke Reading Room of the Research Center at The Art Institute of Chicago, by appointment only. For further information, consult the FAQ.
