Collection of prints, drawings, photographs and papers of Matt Phillips.
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.
