Description

    World War I Propaganda (c. 1918). French Half Grande (32.5" X 47") "Société de Secours aux blessés militaires."
    Formed in 1864, the Société de Secours aux blessés militaires served as the precursor to the French Red Cross of today, which was founded in 1940. Under the leadership of Nobel Peace Prize winner Louius Renault and General Paul Pau, the nurses and physicians of the SSBM traveled to devastated villages throughout the countryside, aiding the scores of wounded and grieving residents. Throughout the horrifying events of WWI, they acted as a sign of hope and national comraderie. Never sold before at Heritage, this beautiful stone litho poster shows fold splits, small chips and tears at the bottom, slight toning, and some surface rippling. Folded, Fine+.


    Estimate: $600 - $1,200.
