    Fight or Buy Bonds (Lot of 2) 30" x 20" Artist: Howard Chandler Christy. Christy was a popular magazine illustrator before the war and, thanks to several pictures he created during the Spanish American War, he became well-known as a military scene painter. He is most famous for his "Christy Girls" who were born on a poster called "The Soldier's Dream" which illustrated a girl forming from the smoke of a soldier's pipe. This poster depicts one such "Christy Girl" waving the American flag over her head and a group of troops. This is one of Christy's lesser acclaimed posters but, in truth, it is one of his best since it combines the two elements of which he was a master; the Christy Girl and the military scenery.

    Poster 1-Fair; severely torn in a few places down into the graphic, upper right corner is missing entirely, tape on the bottom needs immediate removal before damage occurs; this poster is repairable to display gorgeously.
    Poster 2-Fine; minor/major tears on top and bottom edges, edges show normal wear from rolling/storage.
