Original World War I PostersPage 1/1

Many thousands of posters were produced during the First World War as governments looked to galvanise national production, bolster morale, conscript troops, and support industry at home during a period of unparalleled uncertainty. In the hands of master poster artists, they proved an indispensable communicative medium: mass-produced and easily disseminated, the poster brought colour and expressive resonance in its simplicity and clear messages. Those few examples that have weathered the hundred years or more since their design and display now represent a rich contextual source, images as powerful and moving to those mindful of the conflict as they were to those who eventually took part in it. Saved from the destructive fate assigned to most posters, these survivors are relics of an extraordinary age of printmaking in times of extreme adversity. We're very lucky to have these excellent examples of original French posts which we offer for sale at the Eames Fine Art Studio for a limited time.
