    Description

    World War I Propaganda (U.S. Printing and Litho Co., 1918). Fine/Very Fine on Linen. Poster (19.75" X 29.75") "Remember Belgium," Ellsworth Young Artwork. War.
    Chicago based artist Ellsworth Young, most noted for his paintings of placid landscapes, is credited for this powerful and frightening image. The occupation of Belgium served as a major propaganda theme of World War I. Horror stories of how the civilian population was treated, true or not, became fodder for the persuasion machine that was created to stir up the populace for a variety of causes, most having to do with raising money via bond issues. A partially restored poster that displays signs of use. May include edge wear, tears including a large tear from the top border into the upper background, minute chips, paper lifts, or unobtrusive stains. Restoration has addressed some of these issues. Grades on all restored items are pre-restoration grades.
