Falls: E-E-E-Yah-Yip Go Over with the U.S. Marines 1917.


Categories: , ,


Charles Buckles Falls E-E-E-Yah Yip Go Over with the U.S. Marines 1917. Rallying cry urges recruits to join the Corps, the unit always at the forefront of the action. Falls pioneered a new modern style that was already getting established in France. The artist’s severe cropping suggests that the leatherneck is rushing in and out of our view. The style was borrowed from candid photography which often accidently captures subjects off center.  The point of view, which seems to be life caught on the fly, was adapted by Edgar Degas and other post impressionists.  Hard to find. 30×30 near mint, conservation backed.
