    Description

    World War II Propaganda (1939). Fine+ on Linen. Full-Bleed French Petite (15.5" X 23.5") "Silence," Paul Colin Artwork.
    Although now remembered as the most violent and destructive war in history, World War II had a slow start with little military activity during its first eight months, a time period known as the Phoney War. This French poster, the first of its kind Heritage has ever offered, comes from this period of uneasy inactivity and warns both soldiers and civilians of the need for secrecy against fifth column traitors. Illustrated by Paul Colin in his signature Art Deco style, this poster has been restored to address fold wear and pinholes in the corners. There were pencil marks in one of the white figures and in the black figure, which have also been addressed. Still visible are unaddressed surface scuffs. Fine+ on Linen.
