From nocturnal Madagascan lemurs to miming, here are our Marketing Assistant's favorites from the archive​​​

 

 

What is your role at Bridgeman?

I am the Marketing Assistant at Bridgeman's New York office.

 

What do you love most about the job?

I love exploring the archive and finding new, interesting images to use in marketing projects for the company. I obtained my degree in Fine Arts and Art History, so being able to utilize the famous and not-so-famous images in a digital capacity.

 
What misconceptions do clients most commonly have about the archive?

Many assume we only have the standard fine art images that everyone and their mother knows. The archive is full of strange, funny, and sometimes silly images that a lot of people are unaware of.

While at college, I studied fine arts with a concentration in painting. I worked as an abstract painter, and one of my ultimate inspirations was Cy Twombly. He was able to create space and invoke emotion through a series of scribbles.

 

 

 

Aye-aye (Daubentonia madagascariensis), Encyclopedia Britannica

This is my all-time favorite animal: the aye-aye. Native only to Madagascar, this nocturnal breed of lemur is quite extraordinary. If you notice it's right hand in this image, the middle finger is extremely long and thin in comparison to the others. In combination with the complex geometry of ridges on the inner surface of its ears that help to sharply focus on signals from its prey, the aye-aye uses its extra long finger (made up primarily of nerves) to tap onto tree trunks to find grubs living within the hollow of the tree. Very cool.

Howl, Archie Proudfoot

One of our newest Bridgeman Studio artist. All I can say is that I am utterly obsessed. That "millenial pink".

His name also makes me think perhaps he has some hobbit blood in his family... :)

The last Emperor of China? More like the cutest emperor of China. A fantastic example of hidden gems within the Bridgeman archive. Yo go, Pu Yi.

This clip from our collection if footage is pure magic. The ability to tell a story with absolutely no sound is captivating. Miming is such an interesting and strange art-form that gets little recognition.
