Categories: , ,


Artist Unknown World War 1918. Ultimate romantic image of Columbia in see through gauze seated on a majestic throne wafted aloft by a victory laurel that also bears a sizable American eagle. The artist twists Columbia and her billowing flag toward a fantasy of men in the front lines.  Symbols of various branches of the army, stand above the flags of the Allied nations. Text under service record quotes a speech of Woodrow Wilson stating “Our present…task is to win the war and nothing shall turn us aside….until it is accomplished.”  20×25 mint..
