Britton, L. N.: Feed Our Fighters. Buy Bonds to Your Utmost


Size: 27×39


Britton, L.N.: Feed Our Fighters Buy Bonds to Your Utmost. Elegant die cut triptych poster shows doughboys all smiles as hot food is ladled out from an army chuck wagon on a open field protected by a biplane. The farmland is empty apart from a shattered farmhouse. Flanking panels shows life in the deep trenches: doughboys with cups of joe at the left and lining up for books (bibles?) at the right. Britton was a well known artist. The decorative line of smoke curling skyward from the wagon, a mark of an artist who cares about design as well as conveying the realities of the war to the public. Very rare. 27×39 near mint.
