Item Details
Description
The horrors and destruction of aerial bombing are shown in this dramatic and effective image created to promote a war bond campaign by the US Government. The image was designed by Allen Saalburg (1899-1987), who was an illustrator and printmaker, son of a newspaper cartoonist. Saalburg studied painting at Pratt Institute and at the Art Students League in New York City. In 1927 he moved to Paris, where he exhibited paintings at Bernheim-Jeune Gallery. After his return to New York in 1930, he started working on murals and theatre sets. The Federal Art Program in New York commissioned Saalburg murals in Central Park and the zoo, among others. He also had several private commissions, such as the original gourmet shop at Bloomingdale's and a mural with eighteen interior panels for the Home Building Pavilion at the 1939 New York World's Fair. This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.
