New York: American Lithographic Company, 1918.
Poster. Lithograph mounted on linen (two sheets have been joined). Image measures 60" x 77".
Dramatic wall sized World War I recruitment poster featuring a lifeboat of sailors crashing through the waves after a U-boat attack. Sir Frank Brangwyn (1867-1956) was born in Belgium but based in London as an artist and illustrator. His loose and lively style lends itself well to such a riveting scene. One of two war posters Brangwyn made in America. A few creases and abrasions. Professional restoration to some of the figures near the oars. Scarce.
Condition: Very Good(+)
