    World War I Propaganda Poster (France, 1918). French War Loan Poster (28" X 47"). War.
    This is one of those posters that is far better than it might appear with just a casual glance. It was produced in France before World War I ended. The artist Jacques Carlu has a man dressed in 18th century clothing singing his heart out, joined by a WWI soldier at the right in song. The man is Claude-Joseph Rouget de l'Isle, who was a French army office of the Revolutionary Wars. He wrote the words and music for "Chant de Guerre Pour l'Armee du Rhin" in 1792. This became later known as the French national anthem, "La Marseillaise". At the bottom of the poster is a stirring patriotic message from the then French Prime Minister, Georges Clemenceau, who a year later would be the chief architect of the Treaty of Versailles. A restored poster that displays signs of use. May include light edge or fold wear, slight fold separations, minor paper loss. Grades on all restored items are pre-restoration grades. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Fine/Very Fine on Linen.
