    Description

    World War I Propaganda Poster (Leslie-Judge Co., 1917). James Montgomery Flagg Poster (30" X 40") "I Want You for U. S. Army." .
    At the top of his career, James Montgomery Flagg was the highest paid magazine illustrator in America. This important recruitment poster for the US Army was perhaps the crowning achievement of his great body of work. Using his own image to avoid having to hire a model (adding only some age and a white goatee), he fashioned one of the most successful recruitment posters ever printed. Indeed, it was a design that saw millions of copies printed through the years, and was even revived for WWII. Beautiful linenbacking and light touch-up for some border wear with small tears in the borders and credits, minor tape staining on the left shoulder, and restored paper loss in the bottom left corner. A fine piece of pre-1920 Americana. Fine+ on Linen.
