DescriptionFrench World War I Propaganda (1920). Post-War Reconstruction Poster (31" X 46.5") "Emprunt Francis 5% 1920, Lloyds and National Provincial Foreign Bank Limited," Lucien Jonas Artwork.
Lucien Jonas (1880-1947) was a French painter who came to prominence during the First World War. Among the most prolific of war artists, Jonas' works were frequently published in many Allied newspapers, magazines and books throughout the world. After the war his artistic skills continued to be highly sought after. This magnificent stone litho translates as "French Loan 5% 1920." Created to promote France's Reconstruction, it depicts Uncle Sam and envoys from other Allied Nations (Japan, Italy, Belgium and The United Kingdom) making contributions to Marianne, the historic symbol of France. Although having been backed on linen, this wonderful piece has had no professional restoration done. There are some minor creases around the edges, as well as some minor fold wear and light fold separation in the center. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $400 - $800.
