During the struggles of World War ll, many relief organizations formed in the United States to help bolster the relief effort in some of the invaded countries of Europe. Most of these groups were strongly supported by Americans of origin in those countries. In this Polish War Relief Poster we are drawn to the sadness of the Mother clutching her baby and holding her other child. The feeling of need and despair is so well conveyed by the artist. Wladyslaw Theodor Benda (1873-1948) was a Polish born, naturalized American artist . He was best known as the originator of Benda masks (used on stages internationally) and as an illustrator with a flair for the exotic. He illustrated many books and magazines, including Century, Scribner's, Cosmopolitan, and Vanity Fair.

  • 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.

  • The Ross Gallery has the best selection of vintage posters I have ever seen. Seriously, if you are in the market, they are the people. And, they know everything there is to know about the posters' provenance.
