New York: U. S. Government Printing Office, 1942. Poster. Color lithograph. Image measures 28 x 40 inches.
This original World War II-era poster shows a side profile of a soldier in the middle of shooting a water cooled machine gun in the darkness. It was produced as a work incentive on the home front. The poster is in very good condition and mounted on linen. Original folds slightly visible. Norman Rockwell (1894-1978) was an illustrator and painter and his subject matter and style came to epitomize American everyday life in the 20th century. This is a scarce poster and a classic Rockwell image.
