The Herbert Matter Archive

The Herbert Matter archive spans the years 1937-1984, when Matter was active as a graphic designer and photographer in the United States, until his death at the age of seventy-seven. The archive is large and includes original art work and production files; manuscript materials; film, video and audio media; photographs; books and printed matter; correspondence; and negatives and transparencies of his commercial and non-commercial photographic work. Together they constitute a collection of extraordinary depth and comprehensiveness and provide a rich collection of primary materials to be utilized for scholarship and exhibition.
