    Description

    World War I Propaganda (American Red Star Animal Relief, 1918). Recruitment Poster (20.5" X 30.25") "Help the Horse to Save the Soldier," Fortunino Matania Artwork.
    Artist Fortunino Matania was a WWI war correspondent for The Sphere magazine and used his artistic skills to capture scenes he would witness on the battlefields. The US Army used 243,135 horses during the war for many purposes, and many of those fell victim to the same shells and bombs that the soldiers did. The American Red Star Relief program was established to provide medical help for the horses and other animals used in the war effort. The artwork created by Matania captured the urgent situation that animals needed help as well, and this poster asked the public to volunteer their efforts. No touchup has been applied to this poster, which shows mild edge wear with small tears and minor bits of paper loss. Very Fine on Linen.
