    Description

    World War I Propaganda (Royal National Lifeboat Institution, c. 1916). Very Fine on European Linen. British Poster (20" X 30") William Lionel Wyllie Artist.
    A volunteer charity that has been dedicated to saving lives at sea since 1824, the Royal National Lifeboat Institution raised private funds for decades via the sale of flags on Flag Day. Widely renowned as one of the greatest maritime painters of all time, William Lionel Wylie provided the incredible artwork for this poster, pressing the importance of the organization to the safety of British servicemen during the Great War. Appearing for the first time at Heritage, this poster has had no touchup applied, showing only fold wear with faint smudges and light image ghosting. The linen has been trimmed to the borders. Very Fine on European Linen.
