Getty Research Institute Gains Historical Artifacts From the Merrill C. Berman Collection

The Getty Research Institute (GRI) acquired 600 prints, posters, catalogs, drawings, and other “printed ephemera” from the Merrill C. Berman Collection. Berman collected these works over 5 decades; they reflect “Berman’s lifelong interest in history, the social role of artists, and the integral role of art and graphic design in social movements of the 20th century.” In addition, the works highlight “four core strengths of Berman’s collection: Works Progress Administration-era posters, social justice and LGBTQ+ collections, and African American culture, activism, and protest collection.”

“This important selection from Berman’s collection addresses a major gap in our American holdings, illustrating the influence of the Bauhaus and other modernist movements on American design of the 20th century, emphasizing the critical social role of artists, and adding further momentum to the important work being done by our African American Art History Initiative,” says Mary Miller, GRI’s director.
