During World War I, America’s best illustrators volunteered their skills to the U.S. government to create a series of posters that would encourage Americans to support the war effort. As the Division of Pictorial Publicity, these artists produced some of the most provocative and iconic imagery of the 20th century. Their emotional appeal helped to mobilize a sense of selfless patriotism in the hearts of millions of Americans and usher in the American Century. Perhaps the most famous of these posters is this iconic vision of Uncle Sam by artist J.M. Flagg.
You can commemorate the centennial anniversary of America's entry into the Great War, when so many citizens heeded Uncle Sam's call. Available here in a high quality 8x10'' matted art print, Uncle Sam commands attention as he locks eyes with the viewer, points his finger and delivers his message: ''I Want You.'' This print uses museum-quality archival inks so its colors will remain bright and bold. It makes a wonderful gift for the history or art lover in your life.
