Bonwit Teller window display featuring women's ensemble by the designer Lanz. The background displays a piece entitled Flag on Orange (1957) by American artist Jasper Johns. The mannequin is placed slightly off center, allowing the artwork to be displayed fully. The mannequin poses wearing a dress, heeled shoes and gloves. A wreath of flowers hangs near the belt. A banner at the bottom of the display reads "Bonwit's young American clothes by Lanz. See the great Spring collection on our Young Seventh Floor. Bonwit's Annual Young American Artists Window Exhibit. Flag on Orange by Jasper Johns, talented artist who has worked with us on window displays."
