Chagall painted covers for Harper’s Bazaar, Man Ray commissioned Giacometti to make sculptures for the magazine’s fashion shoots and Andy Warhol began his career drawing for our pages. Bazaar’s extraordinary legacy in the art world continues today; Tracey Emin, Gillian Wearing and Yoko Ono are just a few of the artists who have collaborated with us over the past year.

A Celebration of Bazaar’s Female Photographers at The V&A
Ahead of the new V&A Photography Centre opening to the public on 12 October, the museum is hosting an event exclusively for Harper’s Bazaar. The bespoke presentation, held in the Prints & Drawings Study Room, will show work by female photographers who have contributed to Bazaar throughout the magazine’s history. This includes work by Lillian Bassman, Diane Arbus and Genevieve Naylor, as well as a selection of images, many of them previously unseen, that were recently donated to the V&A by the Linda McCartney Foundation.
With the V&A curators on hand to discuss the photographs, this event is a unique opportunity to see behind the lens of some of Bazaar’s most notable female contributors. Breakfast will be provided and champagne is courtesy of Ruinart.
