About this artwork

James Teague studied industrial design at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago during the 1930s. In 1950, Teague and two colleagues bought the Chicago firm of Barnes & Reinecke’s company’s design interests and formed their independent partnership, Painter/Teague/Petertil, Industrial Designers. Teague practiced product and graphic design independently in Chicago after 1960. This collection contains a scrapbook of Teague’s product and graphic designs and a small grouping of professional papers and photographs.
