World War I was a hard fought struggle that was waged with a great deal of use of trenches where soldiers were compelled to stay in the battlegrounds for extended periods of time. The message to the domestic population in this poster by Wallace Morgan was to conserve food and waste nothing so that all fighters and their families could be better taken care of. Morgan was one of a handful of artists selected by General Pershing to create posters during the War and they were provided with broad access to the soldiers in the fields, hence the very realistic portrayal of the fighter in this poster.

Wallace Morgan (1875 - 1948) grew up in Albany, New York where his family had moved shortly after his birth. Upon graduation from high school he returned to his birthplace, New York City, to pursue a career in art. He studied at the National Academy of Design while working at the New York Sun as a part-time artist. Morgan went on to open his own studio and his ability to sketch quickly was put to effective use during the War. His work projects an air of activity and movement into scenes of combat. A number of his pictures also reflect his apparent interest in the many columns of troops, animals, and equipment that moved ceaselessly across the battlefields of France. After the war Morgan returned to work in his studio in New York City.

  • If there's anything you want to know about posters, vintage or more modern, there's nothing Mr Ross doesn't know. His open and friendly manner helps one to choose the most suitable material whether for decoration, investment or whatever... I can't recommend him highly enough.

  • Just wanted to say thanks for the poster. You sent it on Thursday and it was delivered the following Monday (nearly quicker than it took us to get home) to our house in Perth, Australia. We have just had it framed. We love it; it goes perfectly with the room.
