    Description

    World War I Propaganda (Carey & Sons, 1918). Poster (27.25" X 37.75") Paul Stahr Artwork.
    Best known for his rousing, patriotic music, John Philip Sousa earned the nickname "The March King" for such timeless pieces as "Stars and Stripes Forever," "Semper Fidelis," and, of course, "The Liberty Bell March," immortalized as the theme music for Monty Python's Flying Circus. A member of the United States Marine Band, he became the conductor of that organization in 1880, a post he held until 1892. Beginning in that year, Sousa formed his own band, and embarked on yearly tours that proved extremely popular. Between 1892 and 1931, Sousa and his band logged more than 15,000 concerts, including a performance representing America at the Paris Exposition in 1900. In 1932, at the age of 77, Sousa succumbed to a heart attack, ending his long and illustrious career. Offered here is a wonderful illustration by Paul Stahr of Sousa leading one of his marches, inspiring the crowd through melody and passion. There is touchup to the folds, corner bends, and a few pinholes. The linen has been trimmed to the border. Very Fine- on Linen.
