Categories: , ,


Henry Reuterdahl The Navy Put ’em Across 1918. Undaunted by his heavy load, a sailor is pictured carrying a doughboy and all his battle gear across the Atlantic.  Miraculous trip echos images of Saint Christopher carrying the Christ child safety across dangerous waters. The Navy’s role in World War I also included the protection of convoys, the sinking of enemy ships, including U-Boats, and helping to keep the Kaiser’s High Sea’s fleet bottled up in the Kiel Canal. Scarce. 45×28 near mint, conservation backed.
