Towards 1929 Frank Lloyd Wright made a series of "black drawings" of some of his works. Black for the weight that the black areas have in it and for the singularity which constitutes in the usual style of Wright. They are different to the ones that he used to do and of a style that he did not return to repeat. On one of them Wright wrote the phrase Grammar of the Protestant. This article is about this drawing, attempts to understand its raison d'etre and the autobiographical part that Wright projected in it.
