When WWI broke out, American commercial art was still in its early stages; most artists were still classically trained painters. That painterly approach is clearly seen in this WWI poster by Sidney Reisenberg for the American Third Liberty Loan. The dramatic use of foreshortening makes it feel as though the brave soldier is leaping off the page, American flag firmly in his grip.

America's involvement in WWI was largely unanticipated, and quite expensive. The U.S. Government began soliciting bonds that everyday Americans could deposit to the cause, to be paid back by the government when the war ended with interest applied. This influx of cash flow allowed the US to buy tanks, feed soldiers, and essentially finance the path to victory.

Sidney Reisenberg (1885-1971) studied at the Art Institute of Chicago before making his way to New York, like many commercial artists of his era. While this is considered by many his most recognized poster, he did create many other WWI posters for both the Liberty Loan as well as the Marine Corps.

  • 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.
