Erler: Und Ihr?



Erler: Und Ihr? (And You?) The word duty is implied but not stated in this plea for German war loans featuring a wounded aviator who still wears his flying cap, goggles and leather flying jacket. His questioning look is enough to shame any viewer who hasn’t yet underwritten the war effort with his own money to ante up. Strong composition and superior drawing are hallmarks of Erler’s sophisticated style. 37×54 near mint, conservation backed.conservation backed.
