    Description

    World War I Propaganda (1917). Poster (31" X 43") "All Together -- Enlist in the Navy," Henry Reuterdahl Artwork.
    Swedish-American painter Henry Reuterdahl (1870-1925) was highly regarded for his nautical artwork, which was inspired by the long relationship he had with the United States Navy. Not only did he serve as a Lieutenant Commander in the Naval Reserve Force, but Reuterdahl was selected by President Roosevelt to document the journey on the "Great White Fleet" voyage in 1907. A testament to Reuterdahl's skill, this breathtaking Navy recruitment poster for WWI is a rousing depiction of six young seamen in uniform, each from a different Allied Power, standing above their flag: Japan, France, United States of America, Britain, Russia and Italy. With its beautiful color palette, this stone litho poster is not only patriotic, but it's an impressive work of art. Mounted on linen, the piece shows mild tears in the borders, vertical creasing, stains and smudging, and the borders were once folded back. Touchup has addressed some of these issues. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
