    Description

    World War II Propaganda by Norman Rockwell (U.S. Government Printing Office, 1942). Very Fine+ on Linen. Poster (40" X 28") "Let's Give Them Enough and On Time."
    The United States found itself unprepared for war after the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor, due to weapon shortages. This striking Norman Rockwell poster, meant for display in munitions factories, showcases the problem, as it features a soldier in a frayed uniform at the helm of a weapon nearly exhausted of its ammo. While the GI doesn't realize he will soon be out of munitions, the viewer is all too aware, and recognizes the danger. A perfect reflection of the desperation felt during the years when the U.S. was losing the war, the poster was issued soon after the Japanese overtook Bataan and Corregidor. It showcases the only image of Rockwell's with a soldier in battle, where his other works depict soldiers in the homefront or light-hearted situations. There is light partial touchup to fold wear and pinpoint fold separations.
