The Collections » SMARTBLINDS

John Dodge began assembling his extraordinary collection of images almost half a century ago. Coming from an old New England family, he was first drawn to Americana – but his eclectic eye soon took him in many directions and whatever was beautiful, interesting, or otherwise caught his fancy found a place in his delightful treasure-trove.

Today, the archives of The John Brooks Dodge Collections|Dodge Art contain more than 50,000 images: lithographs, photographs, illustrations and prints by world-renowned artists. The wide range of images includes everything from Victorian Valentines and Art Nouveau decorative motifs to early aviation, bygone cityscapes, floral designs, and exquisite prints from vintage children's books, as well as hundreds of glass negatives from the early age of photography. In addition, the archives have a complete set of the Harper's Weekly, which includes thousands of wood engravings from the nineteenth century.

Trained as a fine artist as well as a graphic artist, John Dodge is widely acknowledged to be one of the foremost hand-colorists alive. His commissioned works have been installed around the world, including in New York's Waldorf-Astoria, the Palmer House in Chicago, and the Conrad Hilton Hotel in Istanbul.

The images displayed here are just a fraction of our holdings. We are constantly adding to our site and will gladly search our archives to suit a particular need. We invite requests to license our images, as well as to purchase an original; however, all images will remain part of this digital archive. We hope you will enjoy browsing through the John Brooks Dodge Collections – the distillation of a lifetime's pursuit of exceptional decorative art.
