    Description

    U.S. Marine Corps (U.S. Government Printing Office, 1942). WWII Recruitment Poster (28" X 38") James Montgomery Flagg Artwork.
    James Montgomery Flagg was perhaps one of the most well-known illustration artists in the world during the first half of the twentieth century and contributed greatly to the WWI effort with his highly evocative posters. His most famous work is the Uncle Sam "I Want You" image which is also offered in this auction. This wonderful WWII poster was done by Flagg and is one of a small handful he did during this conflict and is very scarce for collectors. There was a tear from the upper right border down to the soldier's shoulder and a tear from the upper border down to just above the soldier's head. There was a slight amount of irregular trim in the upper and lower border. The restoration work was beautifully done and the poster displays very well. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
