Description

    World War I Propaganda by Louis Raemaeker (U.S. Navy Publicity Bureau, 1917). Poster (28" X 34.5") "Enlist in the Navy."
    "Americans! Stand by Uncle Sam for liberty against tyranny!" The powerful words of Theodore Roosevelt ring loud and clear with this stirring piece of WWI propaganda. With the shores of America in the distance, this striking image features Uncle Sam, dressed as a soldier, brandishing a pistol at the royally dressed Kaiser, while protecting a woman who has collapsed under the weight of a cross etched with the words "Barbarism" and "Slavery." Dutch artist Louis Raemaeker's work was so effective, he was placed on trial for endangering Dutch neutrality. After his acquital, Raemaeker quickly fled for Britain, as the Germans had placed a price of 12,000 guilders on his head... dead or alive. A first time offering from Heritage, this poster has been restored to address chipping in the upper border, a chip in the lower left corner, and a tear from the upper border extending almost into the image. Fine on Linen.
