Seymour Chwast Collection

Abstract

Seymour Chwast has profoundly affected American graphic design and illustration, both through his stewardship of the seminal Push Pin Studios (which he founded in 1954 with Milton Glaser and Ed Sorel) and his consistent contributions in editorial illustration for periodicals such as The New York Times, Forbes, and Frankfurter Allgemeine. When it first gained recognition, Push Pin represented a radical departure from the modernist orthodoxy prevalent in the New York design world, and embraced a flowing and vibrant visual style that would make its mark on the Pop movement of the 1960s; this was recognized in The Push Pin Style, the unprecedented exhibition of American design at the Louvre’s Musée des Arts Decoratifs in 1970. Chwast’s heavily-stylized but finely-worked variety of pastiche has more recently found resonance with emergent tendencies in post-modern graphic design.
