PONTIAC 6 / PRODUCTION GENERAL MOTORS. 1928.
62x46 3/4 inches, 157 1/2x118 3/4 cm. Office d'Editions d'Art, Paris. Condition B / B+: repaired tear through upper left text; repaired tears at edges; minor repaired tears, creases, abrasions and overpainting along vertical and horizontal folds.
For this commission by General Motors' Éditions d'Art agency, Greif presents "a driverless sedan (presumably so that passersby could mentally picture themselves inside the vehicle) streaking uphill below the lofty presence of the Pontiac Indian" (Crouse p. 51). The dramatic diagonal forms and brushstroke effect enhance the sense of speed, and the limited color palette ties the design together with the text. Rare. Crouse p. 50.
