An injured soldier doubles over as he succumbs to enemy fire on a South-East Asiatic beach in this World War II poster by Ray Prohaska. This artwork, printed in 1944 declares, "Carless Talk Got There First." The image is one of many created during WWII to promote the war effort, that centered on the theme of "Careless Talk" in the face of home-front espionage. This is the smaller size variant of this image.

Ray Prohaska (1901-1981) worked as a commercial artist in the mid-20th Century and later developed a successful abstract fine art career. He attended the San Francisco School of Fine Arts and later moved to New York to pursue a career as a commercial artist. Notable publishing clients included The Saturday Evening Post, Good Housekeeping, and McCalls.

  • 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.
