Description
Collection of prints, drawings, photographs and papers of Matt Phillips.
Background
Matt Phillips was born in New York City in 1927. He initially pursued a career as a poet and, in 1952, earned an M.A. in literature from the University of Chicago. At the same time, he was studying art at the Barnes Foundation in Merion, Pennsylvania. Not content with the collections of modern art in the U.S., Phillips traveled throughout Europe and studied painting in the museums and studios there. He taught briefly in Paris but returned to the U.S. in 1964 to teach at Bard College in New York. Having retired from Bard in 1987, he now devotes his time to exhibitions, travel and guest lectures.
