Sundblom: Ready – Join the U.S. Marines 1942. Great portrait of a resolute Marine by a well regarded artist. Sundblom presents his handsome Marine sargeant standing at parade rest, perfectly turned out in dress blues. The model wears two campaign ribons, a 6th Marine Regiment braid and a sharpshooters medal. Blocking part of the title is a mark of a somewhat daring and original composition. 40×28 near mint, conservation backed.
