    Description

    Painting of John J. Pershing 16" x 11" Artist: William Krieghoff. A small poster which depicts General Pershing talking to several doughboys as they overlook the European countryside. This poster features the artwork of William Krieghoff, who was a popular illustrator of the art nouveau school. His painting of Pershing depicts the great General doing what he did best, leading his troops across Europe. Pershing would obtain the highest rank ever in the Armed Services, equal only to that of the posthumous George Washington. His efforts in the Great War would hasten the allies victory in the war. having acquired his new rank of General of the Armies of the United States, he was authorized to create his insignia for the rank but he declined. He wore the four stars of a regular General for the rest of his life. This poster commemorates a great General, a humble man who was possibly solely responsible for the swift victory of the allies!

    Condition-Good; paper is sturdy but is becoming extremely brittle and yellow, there are several hard creases along the x-axis which are starting to tear the paper in half, some dirt residue on edges.
