Description
This piece was a part of the Atlantic Richfield Company's corporate art collection. Now known simply as ARCO, the oil company was one of the largest in the world in the late 1960s, when it's founder, Robert O. Anderson appointed Herbert Bayer as its Art and Design Consultant. The Bauhaus artist was soon overseeing the largest corporate art collection in existence, and by his death in 1985, it included over 30,000 works nationwide.
