    Description

    Make Our American Red Cross In Peace As In War (American National Red Cross, 1919) WW I Poster (20" X 29.5"). "Pieta" in background with text over. Poster showing a monumental Red Cross nurse cradling a wounded soldier on a stretcher. This image was used on a number of WWI posters and was found to be so successful it was used again during the Second World War. The artist, Alonzo Earl Foringer, who was better known as a muralist and designer of bank notes, was not known as a poster artist, but he managed to create one of the most famous and powerful images of the first decades of the 20th Century. Very Fine condition.
