Leon Helguera was an American artist and illustrator of Mexican descent who lived from 1899-1970. He designed the first United Nations Stamp and a number of U.S. Postage Stamps. Helguera also created advertising posters for Pan American Airways.

Uncle Sam is an iconic figure in American political posters. ‘I'm Counting On You,' created in 1943 by Helguera, builds on this well established imagery made famous by James Montgomery Flagg's 1917 "I Want You" recruitment poster. Here, Uncle Sam signals to the viewer to refrain from discussing information about their loved ones serving at home or abroad for fear of espionage. The image is one of many created during World War II to promote the war effort, that centered on the theme of "Careless Talk" in the face of home-front espionage.

  • 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.
