    Description

    World War I Propaganda (U.S. Marines, 1917). Fine+ on Linen. Marine Recruitment Poster (28.25" X 39.5") "Active Service on Land and Sea." Sidney Reisenberg Artwork.
    With America's entry into World War I, all the branches of the military geared up quickly to meet the demands of the American Expeditionary Forces under General John J. Pershing. Artist Sidney Reisenberg emphasizes the pride and sharpness of the Marines in this appeal to recruits. Excellent restoration has corrected slight edge wear, light creases, a few surface scuffs, as well as small tears and chips. There was some paper loss in the upper right border. The poster was not folded prior to linen backing and the side borders in addition to the upper border have been airbrushed. Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $1,000 - $2,000.
