DescriptionWorld War I Propaganda (Bureau of Printing, 1917). Fine/Very Fine on Paper. Filipino Liberty Bonds Poster (22.5" X 28.25") "Your Liberty Bonds Will Help Stop This," F.C. Amorsolo Artwork.
A perfect example as to how WWI was truly a "World" war, this war bonds poster comes from the other side of the globe from the European theater. Then a Pacific territory of the United States, even the Philippines were subject to the propaganda and advertisement of Liberty Bonds issued during WWI. Depicting one of the most infamous stories from the Great War (the crucifixion of a Canadian soldier at the hands of the German Army), this piece by F.C. Amorsolo is making its first appearance at Heritage. No touchup has been applied to this paper-backed poster, which still shows mild fold wear and separation, some edge wear, moderate tears in the borders, and a few small chips. Fine/Very Fine on Paper.
Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
