Drawing, Package Design

This is a Drawing. It was designed by Henry Dreyfuss. We acquired it in 1973. Its medium is brush and gouache, watercolor, silver and gold paint, graphite on white wove paper . It is a part of the Drawings, Prints, and Graphic Design department.

Dreyfuss’s packaging designs for the Hickok Company, purveyors of high quality men’s accessories, feature three different color variations of a dynamic triangular motif. Hickok goods, including belts and wallets, were sold in smartly decorated packaging that functioned as both an ideal gift box and attractive storage.
