    Description

    Over the Top For You: Third Liberty Loan (Ketterlinus, Philadelphia, 1917) WW I Poster (20" X 30"). Depicted: Youthful soldier, largely surrounded by a U.S. flag, advancing toward the viewer. The poster artist is Sidney H. Riesenberg (1885 - 1971), who was born in Chicago, but moved to New York early in his career. He is noted as both an illustrator and painter and did covers and interior work for such magazines as Harpers, Scribners, Collier's and The Saturday Evening Post. His paintings were mainly western genre works and his original oils are highly sought after as of late and have been setting record prices at recent auctions. It is thought he reached his peak as an illustrator during WWI, inspired by the war effort. His major works include "Remember The Flag of Liberty" (the famed immigrant 3rd Liberty Loan poster) and "Civilians All". Small chips and minor tears along border, otherwise the poster is in near pristine condition. Very Fine+ condition.
