1961 promotional video for the Lonsdale-Hands Organisation

A fascinating film about the leading commercial design firm in 1950s and 60s London. Known for his innovative industrial design and marketing genius, founder Richard Lonsdale-Hands was also a visionary artist.

This film is a true period piece, a real-life “Madmen.” It is offered here by Hirschl & Adler Galleries, New York, as an educational addendum to a retrospective exhibition of the artist’s work to be held at the gallery in September/October 2011.
