Alexey Brodovitch

Alexey Brodovitch (1898-1971) was a pioneering art director, whose twenty-five-year tenure at Harper’s Bazaar makes him a key figure in editorial design history.

The collection is particularly rich in portraits of Brodovitch himself by photographers who worked with him including Richard Avedon and Arnold Newman along with many others. In addition, the collection includes audio tapes of classes in his home-based design laboratory. The Brodovitch collection has been assembled from the gifts of several donors: The Documents of American Design (1992), Harvey Lloyd (1992-1993) and Dotty Attie (1993).
