With grenade blasts in the background, a unit of American soldiers are in the thick of battle in this 1943 war bonds poster by John Newton Hewitt, entitled "They're Fighting Harder Than Ever." Painted with an emphasis on patriotic colors, the text urges the viewer to buy war bonds to support the soldiers pictured above. The poster was created during the time span of the Second and Third War Loan Drives. The Second War Loan Drive lasted 20 days, from April 12 through May 1, 1943 which raised $18.5 billion. The Third War Loan Drive lasted 23 days, from September 9 through October 1, 1943 and raised $19 billion.

John Newton Hewitt (1885-1958) was an illustrator and fine arts painter. During the depression he illustrated many painted covers for pulp fiction books. This commercial painting style is evident in many of his World War II poster creations. He continued in the graphic arts with artwork for Colliers and Liberty magazines. He also developed a successful fine arts career in portraiture and landscape painting that idealized the mid-century American lifestyle.

  • 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.
