40133: World War I Propaganda by James Montgomery Flagg
Item Details
Description
World War I Propaganda by James Montgomery Flagg (Leslie-Judge Co., 1917): Iconic Uncle Sam Recruitment Poster. Titled "I Want You for the U.S. Army", it measures 30" x 40". Dubbed "The Most Famous Poster in the World" by its creator, James Montgomery Flagg, Uncle Sam's piercing gaze and commanding gesture spurred a huge production of war posters in a single year between 1917-1918, eventually becoming the definitive symbol of the U.S. throughout both World War I & II. An image of profound popularity from the moment of its printing, few illustrations have ever had such an enduring effect over the psyche of the American populace, retaining its instant recognizability throughout the last century. Originally created as cover art for the magazine Leslie's Weekly, Flagg's creation grew into a legendary embodiment of Uncle Sam that has been, and will continue to be, endlessly honored, parodied, and criticized for generations. With its iconic image fully intact, this poster has been backed on linen for preservation and ease of display. There have been some tape stains removed or airbrushed and some areas of minor border loss restored. It displays in near-mint condition. HID03101242017
