    Description

    Civilians; When We Go Through This (The Jewish Welfare Board) (Alco Gravure, Inc, 1918) WW I Poster (22" X 33"). Jewish Welfare Board. Doughboys, Star of David. Brown and blue. The poster artist is Sidney H. Riesenberg (1885 - 1971), who was born in Chicago, but moved to New York early in his career. He is noted as both an illustrator and painter. He did covers and interior work for such magazines as Harpers, Scribners, Collier's and The Saturday Evening Post. His paintings were mainly western genre works and his original oils are sought after and have been setting record prices at recent auctions. It is thought he reached his peak as an illustrator during WWI, inspired by the war effort. His major works include Remember The Flag of Liberty (the famed immigrant 3rd Liberty Loan poster) and the dramatic Over The Top For You. Fine/Very Fine condition.
