Gene Lacy Advertising Plaque (SOLD)

1,600.00

United States
circa 1970

Hand-painted acrylic on three pieces of sheet metal, assembled via screws to a wooden frame, circa 1970. A self promotional advertising plaque with an Alexander Girard vibe by Indianapolis-based graphic designer and illustrator Gene Lacy (1918-1990). Lacy, who studied at the John Herron Art Institute, where he later chaired their visual communications department, was an award-winning graphic designer with precise drawing skills. Along with his wife, Jackie, he was an influential staple of the Indianapolis design scene for over thirty years, helping introduce modern sensibilities to the area. For an overview of his career, along with a slideshow, see Design Observer, May 16, 2012.

Good overall condition. The colors remain vibrant. There is minor scuffing to the painted surface, see photos. One screw is missing. I have sourced similar, still looking for exact match. Sold as is.
