A full catalogue of the work and exhibition of "Fallingwater en Perspectiva, Félix de la Concha Paints Frank Lloyd Wright's House on the Waterfall." The catalogue features  paintings in a variety of sizes, showing different views of the interior and exterior of the house in all seasons and times of day. Some of the paintings focus on architectural details, others on objects from the building’s collections and many depict the building in its natural setting. In a series of seven large, vertical canvases, de la Concha, painting from a location at the base of the waterfall, captures the house over the course of a day from early morning until dusk.

Beginning in 2005, de la Concha visited Fallingwater a few weeks at a time for more than a year, in order to capture the house in every season. De la Concha was born in Leon, Spain, in 1962. He studied at the Facultad de Bellas Artes in Madrid. In 1989, he was awarded the prestigious Prix de Rome at the Academia de Bellas Artes. He has had solo exhibitions in the Carnegie Museum of Art in Pittsburgh and The Frick Art Center. His monumental display, One a Day; 365 Views of the Cathedral of Learning is on permanent display at the Old Masonic Temple in Pittsburgh and his The Last Supper painting is permanently installed at Pittsburgh’s David L. Lawrence Convention Center. His work is included in permanent collections around the world including the Carnegie Museum in Pittsburgh, Columbus Museum of Art, Dartmouth Library and Teatro Real de Madrid.
