Masters of American Design: Brodovitch

Book Review by Soumya Kasuganti

Alexey Brodovitch was an emigrant two times over. He was born in Russia and moved to France soon after the First World War. He soon started to gain fame as a designer there. He lived and worked in France for a decade and then moved to the United States to teach at the Pennsylvania Museum School of Industrial Art. He then moved to New York to work for Harper’s Bazaar for the next twenty four years. In this period he revolutionized magazine design. His methods of integrating image and text were never seen before in the United States. The time was ripe for the influence he brought with him from France, which after WWI was a melting pot for various schools of art. His European reputation also came in part from his use of innovative tools and materials to create designs. He changed the way fashion photography was viewed. During his term at Harper’s Bazaar, fashion became a lifestyle as opposed to a class of people . 

Though his work at Harper’s Bazaar was widely acknowledged to be revolutionary, it is said that his best work came when he worked without an editor to supervise him. The quarterly magazine, Portfolio, though shortlived, is a great example. 

He continued to teach at various schools throughout his career. As a teacher, he found talented artists and photographers and taught them to think differently. He was extremely demanding, but as a result garnered a loyal following. Unfortunately, he did not write or publish his thoughts and much of what he taught only lives on in his students. 

His story is an interesting one, and is told well by teh author. The reader can almost picture the various stages of Brodovitch’s life, and see how they affected his work. His ability to adapt to different places and give them exactly what they needed is brought forward beautifully. One starts to relate to the man, and see how he was driven as a designer. The format of the book, at times, makes it difficult to follow a single thought, which might be interrupted by multiple spreads of images, sometimes in the middle of a word. The story and the images are not always in tandem and this causes some turning of pages. The subject matter itself is so interesting though, that on the whole, the story grips the reader from start to finish and leaves them wanting more.
