    Heroic Women of France (Lot of 4) 22" x 14" Artist: unsigned. This poster is much like another poster made by Edward Penfield, however, this image is an actual photograph of French women toiling on the farm, whereas Penfield's later image was a lithograph of the same photograph. The poster is small and printed on brown/tan paper. It depicts a striking image of women working their farms while the men are away at war, thus prompting American women to offer up the same sacrifices in their country's time of need. A nice find for a collector who prefers the look of photographs over that of lithography.

    Poster 1-Fine; lower left corner shows mild wear and dirt, edges show normal wear from storage/rolling.
    Poster 2-Superior; two small water damage stains not on graphic.
    Poster 3-Fine, small tear on top edge, edges show normal wear from rolling/storage, dirt stains and residue on lower edge.
    Poster 4-Fine; dirt stains and residue on upper edge, hard crease diagonally through top quadrant.
