DescriptionWorld War I Propaganda (Emergency Fleet Corp., 1918). Fine on Linen. Poster (39" X 29.25") "On the Job for Victory," Jonas Lie Artwork.
Productivity, when it came to the manufacturing of ships, during World War I helped lead the United States to victory. In an attempt to encourage citizens to do their part, the Emergency Fleet Corporation created gorgeous posters to drive the point home. Known for his colorful and beautiful works of the coastlines of New England and the construction of the Panama Canal, artist Jonas Lie paints a magnificent image of the ongoing production of massive U.S. ships. Prior to restoration, this poster had edge wear, some creases, and minor chips at the edges. There were large tears into the main image, including some reattached paper loss in the top left corner. Fine on Linen.
Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
