One of the leading American poster artists of the turn of the century, his facility in the graphic arts earned him the nickname "The American B," in reference to the great English graphic artist, Aubrey Beardsley. Born in Boston, Bradley received his first formal artistic education from his father, who worked as a cartoonist for the Daily Item, a local Massachusetts newspaper. In 1880 Bradley began a long career as a journalist, working for the Iron Agitator. He continued his journalistic pursuits until 1887 when he decided to move to Chicago to work for the prestigious painters, Knight and Leonard. By the 1890s he had become an independent designer, working for Harper's and other magazines. He established his own studio and produced theater posters as well as commercial advertisements. By 1895 he was back in Boston where he published "Bradley, His Book: A Monthly Magazine Devoted to Art, Literature, and Printing". Original Les Affiches Etrangeres illustrees. G. Boudet, Editeur.
