    A Girl On Land Serves the Nation's Need 25" x 29.5" Artist: Edward Penfield. Printed for the Y.W.C.A. A cataloguer at Stanford University describes this poster as such; "The dramatic image Penfield made for the Young Women's Christian Association late in his career exemplifies his use of flattened shapes and bold composition. In contrast with his early work, here he reduces the decorative elements and focuses on the broad planes of color to make silhouettes of the figures carrying a hoe, a rake, and harvested vegetables. Despite their competence with tools and farm animals and their khaki-colored uniforms that evoke thoughts of the boys gone off to war, these "girls" remain feminine in face and manner." A great poster for those who are interested in the service organizations!

    Condition: Good; lower right corner is severely damaged with tears and wrinkles, right corner has pieces missing, mild dirt staining around edges.
