In 1940 Lillian Bassman, who was then a fashion illustrator, joined Brodovitchs classes at the New School for Social Research on a scholarship. After just a few weeks Brodovitch suggested she switch from fashion drawing to graphic design, and by the end of the year he made her his apprentice at Harpers Bazaar..
Lillian Bassman’s experimental and romantic visions revolutionized fashion photography. In fact, Vanity Fair magazine singled her out as one of photography’s "grand masters."
