This week we’re highlighting the Annabel Drazen Rosenbloom Collection, another collection related to Washington University’s Sam Fox School of Design & Visual Arts that the Modern Graphic History Library recently received from the University Archives.
Rosenbloom received her BA from Washington University in St. Louis in 1936 and her MA in Art History in 1939. The photographs below were taken in 1937, while Rosenbloom was studying on scholarship at the Sorbonne, and capture the energy and beauty of a pre-war Europe through the eyes of a young American artist.The film went undeveloped for several decades until Rosenbloom rediscovered it when she took a photography class in 1979. In 1986, they were displayed in an exhibit on campus. To learn more about the collection, check out the finding aid.
