    Description

    World War I Propaganda (1917). Fine+ on European Linen. Poster (43" X 43"). War.
    Offered in this lot is a fantastic print of the personification of Italy herself, originally painted by Edwin Blashfield, famous for his many murals in government buildings across the United States. Best known for his work on the dome of the Main Reading Room of the Thomas Jefferson Building in the Library of Congress, Blashfield lent his talent to creating portraits of America's allies during World War I, Italy being depicted with the flag and a golden eagle over the background of SPQR: Senatus Populusque Romanus, "The Roman Senate and People." A partially restored poster with good color and an overall very presentable appearance. It may have edge and fold wear, slight fold separations, creasing, tears, small chips, paper lifts, some surface scuffs, unobtrusive stains/smudges, or toning. Although backed on linen, no further restoration has been applied. Fine+ on Linen.
