    Description

    World War I Propaganda (U.S. Printing and Litho Co., 1918). Very Fine- on Linen. 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, frightening, and emotionally charged image. The occupation of 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 via bond issues. Professional touchup has been applied to pinholes in the borders, a small tear in the top left corner, and a chip in the right border. Very Fine- on Linen.
