    War Rages In France (Lot of 3) 30" x 20" Artist:Townsend. Printed for the U.S. Food Administration. Reminiscent of a Raleigh image this poster depicts starving French citizens looking at the viewer with hopes of aid in their eyes. The use of dark charcoal-like strokes with jagged, chaotic edges mimics Raleigh's style of somberness and desperation. A wonderful poster, which evokes strong emotion about saving food for those less fortunate in Europe.

    Condition-Poster 1-Fine; minor/major edge wear from rolling/storage, smoke damage on the verso, paper slightly yellowing.

    Poster 2-Fine; minor/major wear on edges from rolling/storage, paper yellowing slightly.

    Poster 3-Fine; major tear on top edge, left edge has a minor tear as well.
