During World War II, the United States Government issued a number of posters encouraging domestic workers to aid the war effort by increasing their production. This bold and well executed image very effectively stresses how perseverance in the workplace leads to greater productivity. A worker gives the 'thumbs up' to his coworker as a battlefield rages on in the background. There is a strong correlation between the worker on the Home Front and the soldier 'over there'.

The artist of this poster is Lyman Anderson (1907-1993). He was a classically trained graphic artist who attended the Art Institute of Chicago. During World War II, he created a small group of posters for the United States Government. Aside from his war posters, he is known for his pulp book covers and comic art, as well as advertising posters.

  • 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.
