Description
  • Artist: LILLIAN BASSMAN
  • Title: Times Square: The Night Fantastic, 1997
  • Medium: Photo Litho, 1998, Hong Kong
  • Dimensions: 7.2x9.1"
  • Description: Heat Wax Mounted on 11x14" Conservation Board
  • Artist Bio:

    Lillian Bassman (1917-2012) was an American photographer and painter. In the 1940s until the 1960s Bassman worked as a fashion photographer for Junior Bazaar and later at Harper's Bazaar where she promoted the careers of photographers such as Richard Avedon, Robert Frank, Louis Faurer and Arnold Newman. Under the guidance of the Russian emigrant, Alexey Brodovitch, she began to photograph her model subjects primarily in black and white. By the 1970s Bassman’s interest in pure form in her fashion photography was out of vogue. She turned to her own photo projects and abandoned fashion photography. In doing so she tossed out 40 years of negatives and prints - her life’s work. A forgotten bag filled with hundreds of images was discovered over 20 years later. Bassman’s fashion photographic work began to be re-appreciated in the 1990s.
