    Description

    World War I Propaganda (United States Food Administration, 1917). Poster No. 31 (20" X 30") "Don't Waste Food While Others Starve," Clinker & Dwyer Artwork. War.
    L.C. Clinker and M.J. Dwyer collaborated artistically on this haunting piece, featuring a gaunt mother pleading for food on her children's behalf, surrounded by the crumbling bell towers and displaced populace of a war-wasted Europe. One can only hope it was effective in reminding civilian Americans of their relatively comfortable position, during the Great War. An unrestored poster with bright color and a clean overall appearance. It may show general signs of use, such as slight edge wear, light creases, unobtrusive stains, small tears, or very minor paper loss and surface paper lifts. Please see full-color, enlargeable image above for more details. Rolled, Very Fine.
