    Description

    World War I Propaganda (U.S. Printing and Litho Co., 1918). War Bond Poster (20" X 30") "Remember Belgium," Ellsworth Young Artwork.
    Chicago based artist Ellsworth Young, most noted for his paintings of placid landscapes, is credited for this powerful and frightening image. The German occupation of neutral Belgium served as a major propaganda theme of World War I. Horror stories of how the civilian population was treated, true or not, became fodder for the persuasion machine that was created to stir up the populace for a variety of causes, most having to do with raising money for War Bonds. This emotional poster has been conserved on linen and is in excellent condition. Very Fine+ on Linen.


    Estimate: $400 - $800.
