This poster design was commissioned by Abbott Labs , a medical products company that supplied the United States military forces in World War I and II . The text on the bottom of the poster reads "Published by Abbott Laboratories as a Contribution to the Treasury's Schools-At-War Program". This particular design depicts a Mother and her young children , likely the family of a soldier overseas. The patriotic message is to buy war bonds to keep the land secure , part of the home front effort to support soldiers overseas.

Leon Kroll ( 1884 - 1974) was born in New York City and studied at the Art Students League of New York and later at the Academie Julian in Paris. He was a painter, lithographer, as well as a teacher. His artwork was figurative mainly and he produced a large body of work. He was a member of the American Academy of Arts and Letters as well as a Chevalier in the Legion of Honor.

  • 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.
