Biography/History

Barbara Morgan was a twentieth century photographer best known for her photographs of dancers, photomontages, and light drawings. The University of California at Los Angeles Wight Gallery acquired this collection of Morgan photographs before becoming part of the Hammer Museum.
The Wight Art Gallery at University of California at Los Angeles originally opened in 1964 under the name UCLA Art Galleries and exhibited works on paper, paintings and sculpture. In 1974, the gallery is renamed to the Frederick S. Wight Art Galleries in honor of the former dean of the University of California at Los Angeles Art Department dean. Once the University of California at Los Angeles assumed control of the Armand Hammer Museum of Art and Cultural Center in 1994, the operations of the Wight Gallery were moved there and the gallery was dissolved.
Barbara Brooks Morgan was born in Buffalo, Kansas on July 8, 1900, but grew up in Los Angeles, CA. She attended UCLA from 1919 to 1923 where she trained as a painter and later joined the art faculty (1925-30). Her shift away from painting and interest in the medium of photography grew out of meeting Edward Weston.
She married Willard D. Morgan and then relocated to New York in 1930. After the birth of her two sons, Douglas (1932) and Lloyd (1935), she began to concentrate on her photography career. An accomplished designer, author, artist, and photographer, she is best known for her photographs of American modern dancers, among them, Martha Graham, Doris Humphrey, Pearl Primus, Jose Limon, and Charles Weidman. She contributed articles and reviews to various publications and published several books including, Martha Graham: Sixteen Dances in Photographs (1941), Summer's Children: A Photographic Cycle of Life at Camp [Camp Treetops] (1951), and A Collection of Material about Barbara Morgan (1972), as well as having a photo in Family of Man (1955). She died August 18, 1992 in Scarsdale, NY.
