    Description

    James Montgomery Flagg Autograph Drawing/Letter Signed, 10.5" x 8.25" (16.5 x 14.5" including the frame), pencil and watercolor on paper. Featuring a recumbent, scowling Uncle Sam surrounded by Flagg's flourishing handwriting, "Good God! The act I have to put on! No, No, Kids - get me - I get fed up with being so Gordom noble & stuff! Remind me- will you - never to make peace with Nazis & Japs - exterminate the vermin - & you know my children - I can! Your uncle is a spread eagle blowhard - but there are guns with the wind! & more guns! To our President! God Bless him! Jim Flagg".
    Flagg (1877-1960) is best remembered as the creator of the most famous recruiting poster of all time, the commanding figure of Uncle Sam pointing his finger and declaring, "I Want You!" Flagg posed for the iconic figure himself. This representation of Uncle Sam is also based on Flagg's likeness. The painting is in fine condition.
