    Louis Lo Monaco We Shall Overcome Poster.
    Poster: 14.25" x 17.75"
    Mount: 18" x 22"
    No place; August 28, 1963

    A poster featuring the cover image of Louis Lo Monaco's paper portfolio, We Shall Overcome, which included five collage prints. The photograph incorporated in the collage shows three marchers holding hands placed next to the hand of God from Michelangelo's "Creation of Adam" fresco painting.

    Lo Monaco created these pictorial portfolios as mementos for those who participated in the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom. Over 250,000 marchers attended on August 28, 1963. Although the pictorial portfolios frequently appear at auction, this is the first example we have seen for the poster promoting the portfolio.

    Condition: Trivial wear to poster, with some areas of adhesive residue visible where cover was attached to mount. Light toning to the mount edges. There is also a faint scratch down the mount's right vertical margin.
