Abstract:

The George Platt Lynes Collection consists of photographs, manuscript materials, and a piece of needlepoint collected by Dora Maxwell Harrison, Lynes' assistant from 1936 to 1944.

The works by George Platt Lynes are comprised of 121 gelatin silver prints (98 loose, 23 in a disbound album) and one needlepoint. The loose prints, a combination of exhibition and work prints, provide a good representation of most genres of Lynes' work: portrait, fashion, nude, and theatrical photography. The album documents the evolution of a 1940 painting by Paul Cadmus titled Conservation Piece (1940).

The second series, Photographs of Lynes & Exhibitions, consists of 12 loose gelatin silver prints. Included are portraits by Cecil Beaton, George Hoyningen-Huene, and Janet Taylor, and photographs taken at the 1941 exhibition "Two Hundred Portraits by George Platt Lynes" at the Pierre Matisse Gallery in New York City.

The third series, Manuscript Materials, is comprised of tear sheets, clippings, Lynes exhibition announcements and Christmas cards. Nearly all the tear sheets and clippings are related to Lynes or to Diana Vreeland.
