Howard Chandler Christy was the preeminent artist of his day. From his beginnings as a war correspondent artist during the Spanish American War, thru his children’s book and magazine illustrations, prominent portraits, and beautiful murals Christy set the tone for art at the beginning of the 20th Century.
Not many know of the beautiful series of very effective recruiting and bond posters he painted before and during WW 1. The poster below is the rarer large size image and is wonderfully rendered. It is a hard to find this poster in any condition so when one is discovered torn and tattered it is worth taking on the restoration. There was a large amount of tearing and missing pieces along the edges. In the hands of great conservator anything is possible and pricing is reasonable. Call us to discuss your next project!
