Description: Artist: Alexander BrookArtist Dates: 1898-1980Signed Within Plate: YesDate of Work: 1943Description: This haunting poster by Alexander Brook shows the ghost of a soldier at Bataan. The 1942 Bataan Death March saw the transfer and subsquent torture and death of thousands of Filipino and American prisoners of war by the Japanese followng their win at the Battle of Bataan. For those Americans unfamiliar with the horrors of war, this poster clearly reminded them of the dangers faced daily by our soldiers. Brook became known for his art criticism later in his life.

Discovered in 1970, the posters â€" of which few pristine prints remain with the exception of the National Archives and the Library of Congress â€" were in mint condition, neatly catalogued and folded in brown wrapping paper from grocery stores.

It was during this time that he received his first lessons in painting. In 1914 he entered the Art Students League, where he studied for four years. There he met the painter Peggy Bacon, whom he married in 1920. During his twenties, Brooks painted still lifes and posed figures with vigor and sensuality. He later began to emulate the style of Jules Pascin. From 1924-27 he was the assistant director of Whitney Studio Club. His realist painting was exhibited widely and he won multiple awards. Georgia Jungle won the Carnegie International. Unfortunately for Brook, the realist style fell out of favor late in the 1940s.About 1940, he was divorced from Peggy Bacon. About the same time, he began living in Sag Harbor on eastern Long Island. In 1945 he married the painter Gina Knee. He retired from painting around 1965.Meta: Poster, WWI, WWII, Military, Militaria, Army, Navy, Marines, AirForce, Propaganda.

Description: Artist: John AthertonArtist Dates: 1900-1952Signed Within Plate: Yes "JA"Date of Work: 1943Description: This poster displays a colonial militiaman holding a rifle with his hand on a plow. In the background is a colonial church and there is a large color illustration of the Concord Minuteman statue. This collection is from Dr. David Orzeck by descent to his daughter Lida Orzeck and the entire collection is offered without reserve. Lida Orzeck came across more than 750 vintage war posters from World War I and World War II in her family’s home basement that her father, David Orzeck, a Brooklyn doctor, had meticulously collected.

Recently backed with archival paper (reversible).Artist Biography: John Carlton Atherton was born in Brainard, Minnesota on June 7th, 1900. After a brief service in the U.S. Navy during WWI, Atherton moved to San Francisco, California in 1920. There, he attended College of the Pacific and The California School of Fine Arts (now the San Francisco Art Institute) and practiced his techniques in various West-Coast studios.Upon winning a five-hundred dollar first prize award in the Bohemian Club’s annual exhibition in 1929, Atherton moved to New York City to test his ability as a commercial artist. He became widely successful while designing advertisements for companies such as General Motors, Shell Oil, Container Corporation of America, and Dole. But after 1936, encouraged by friend Alexander Brook, an acclaimed New York realist painter, Atherton returned to the fine arts. This new work primarily consisted of symbolic, often bleak landscapes that were becoming a favorite subject of the new surrealist movement in America. Atherton presented his first solo exhibition in New York’s Julien Levy Gallery in 1938 and the artist continued to be represented by the renowned gallery throughout the 1930s and 1940s. Other contemporary artists also showing at the gallery were Max Ernst, Joseph Cornell, Frida Kahlo, and Pavel Tchelitchew, who together supported a decidedly nonconformist movement. Artist Dorothea Tanning once described the prestige of the gallery: â€aeOf all the gallery activity on Fifty-Seventh Street, where everything happened in those days, it was the Julien Levy Gallery that was truly making art history, the place where it was ‘at.’ ”1Atherton’s reputation increased to a national scale when he designed the art deco stone lithograph poster for the 1939 World’s Fair that strikingly depicted Earth and its atmospheric layers in the lap of Liberty. More recognition followed when, in 1941, the Museum of Modern Art headed a National Defense Poster Competition, which was co-founded by the Army Air Corps and the Treasury Department. Atherton won the first prize in the Defense Bond category for his poster â€aeBuy a Share in America” depicting one hand shaking the hand of America above a factory. Shortly after, in 1943, Atherton placed in the prestigious â€aeArtists for Victory” Competition. Amidst over fourteen-thousand entries, Atherton’s â€aeThe Black Horse” won a three-thousand dolor fourth prize award. The acclaimed artist brought his popular designs into high circulation once he began creating posters and covers for such publications as Fortune, Saturday Evening Post, and Holiday. Atherton would eventually illustrate over forty covers for Saturday Evening Post, starting with his December 1942 design, â€aePatient Dog.” This picture is reminiscent of Norman Rockwell’s famous Americana style and captures a poignant moment of nostalgia: a loyal dog looks toward a wall of hunting equipment and the framed picture of his young owner in military dress.In the late 1940’s, Albert Dorne, fellow Saturday Evening Post illustrator, founded the Famous Artists School, an institution to teach the art of â€aecorrespondence illustration.” John Atherton was among the â€aefamous artists” such as Al Parker, Jon Witcomb, and Norman Rockwell, who contributed to the program. Atherton eventually moved to Arlington, Vermont. In his free time, Atherton enjoyed fly-fishing and was famous for his pioneering fly-tying techniques. He brought his artistic talent to the field when he wrote and illustrated the fishing classic The Fly and The Fish. Sadly it was this very hobby that brought on Atherton’s premature death. The famous illustrator and artist died at age fifty-two (in 1952) in a drowning accident while fly-fishing in New Brunswick, Canada. He was survived by his wife, Maxine Breeze.Meta: Poster, WWI, WWII, Military, Militaria, Army, Navy, Marines, AirForce, Propaganda.

Description: Artist: John AthertonArtist Dates: 1900-1952Signed Within Plate: Yes "JA"Date of Work: 1943Description: This poster displays a colonial militiaman holding a rifle with his hand on a plow. In the background is a colonial church and there is a large color illustration of the Concord Minuteman statue. This collection is from Dr. David Orzeck by descent to his daughter Lida Orzeck and the entire collection is offered without reserve. Lida Orzeck came across more than 750 vintage war posters from World War I and World War II in her family’s home basement that her father, David Orzeck, a Brooklyn doctor, had meticulously collected. Discovered in 1970, the posters â€" of which few pristine prints remain with the exception of the National Archives and the Library of Congress â€" were in mint condition, neatly catalogued and folded in brown wrapping paper from grocery stores.Size: 28"L x 40"HWeight: Provenance: Dr. David OrzeckCondition: Poster has original fold marks and has not been exposed to sunlight, thus preserving the vibrant colors. Recently linen backed.Artist Biography: John Carlton Atherton was born in Brainard, Minnesota on June 7th, 1900. After a brief service in the U.S. Navy during WWI, Atherton moved to San Francisco, California in 1920. There, he attended College of the Pacific and The California School of Fine Arts (now the San Francisco Art Institute) and practiced his techniques in various West-Coast studios.Upon winning a five-hundred dollar first prize award in the Bohemian Club’s annual exhibition in 1929, Atherton moved to New York City to test his ability as a commercial artist. He became widely successful while designing advertisements for companies such as General Motors, Shell Oil, Container Corporation of America, and Dole. But after 1936, encouraged by friend Alexander Brook, an acclaimed New York realist painter, Atherton returned to the fine arts. This new work primarily consisted of symbolic, often bleak landscapes that were becoming a favorite subject of the new surrealist movement in America. Atherton presented his first solo exhibition in New York’s Julien Levy Gallery in 1938 and the artist continued to be represented by the renowned gallery throughout the 1930s and 1940s. Other contemporary artists also showing at the gallery were Max Ernst, Joseph Cornell, Frida Kahlo, and Pavel Tchelitchew, who together supported a decidedly nonconformist movement. Artist Dorothea Tanning once described the prestige of the gallery: â€aeOf all the gallery activity on Fifty-Seventh Street, where everything happened in those days, it was the Julien Levy Gallery that was truly making art history, the place where it was ‘at.’ ”1Atherton’s reputation increased to a national scale when he designed the art deco stone lithograph poster for the 1939 World’s Fair that strikingly depicted Earth and its atmospheric layers in the lap of Liberty. More recognition followed when, in 1941, the Museum of Modern Art headed a National Defense Poster Competition, which was co-founded by the Army Air Corps and the Treasury Department. Atherton won the first prize in the Defense Bond category for his poster â€aeBuy a Share in America” depicting one hand shaking the hand of America above a factory. Shortly after, in 1943, Atherton placed in the prestigious â€aeArtists for Victory” Competition. Amidst over fourteen-thousand entries, Atherton’s â€aeThe Black Horse” won a three-thousand dolor fourth prize award. The acclaimed artist brought his popular designs into high circulation once he began creating posters and covers for such publications as Fortune, Saturday Evening Post, and Holiday. Atherton would eventually illustrate over forty covers for Saturday Evening Post, starting with his December 1942 design, â€aePatient Dog.” This picture is reminiscent of Norman Rockwell’s famous Americana style and captures a poignant moment of nostalgia: a loyal dog looks toward a wall of hunting equipment and the framed picture of his young owner in military dress.In the late 1940’s, Albert Dorne, fellow Saturday Evening Post illustrator, founded the Famous Artists School, an institution to teach the art of â€aecorrespondence illustration.” John Atherton was among the â€aefamous artists” such as Al Parker, Jon Witcomb, and Norman Rockwell, who contributed to the program. Atherton eventually moved to Arlington, Vermont. In his free time, Atherton enjoyed fly-fishing and was famous for his pioneering fly-tying techniques. He brought his artistic talent to the field when he wrote and illustrated the fishing classic The Fly and The Fish. Sadly it was this very hobby that brought on Atherton’s premature death.

Description: Artist: Joseph HirschArtist Dates: 1910-1981Signed Within Plate: AttributedDate of Work: 1942Description: Joseph Hirsch’s original painting â€aeTill We Meet Again” became the most widely reproduced War Bond painting during WWII. It depicts a smiling soldier, wearing his winter issue uniform framed by a troopship’s porthole. He waves goodbye, confident that stateside support for war bonds will buy him the equipment he needs to bring him home safe and sound. Hirsch was noted for his social realism paintings, particularly during the Depression years.

As a pictorial war correspondent during World War II, Hirsch made about seventy-five paintings and drawings between 1943 and 1944 in the South Pacific, Africa, and Italy.Hirsch once said that he wanted his work to reveal his beliefs but never turned to propaganda, as so many artists of his time. He did, however, portray people as heroes in a deeply humanistic, positive manner, using an almost caricature-like exaggeration, especially in early canvasses such as Two Men.With classic techniques, he explored prosaic subject matter ranging in theme from washing windows to leading invocations, sometimes with mocking overtones. He has also represented various generalized kinds of human action through the use of monumental human forms.Meta: Poster, WWI, WWII, Military, Militaria, Army, Navy, Marines, AirForce, Propaganda.

Description: Artist: Georges SchreiberArtist Dates: 1904-1977Signed Within Plate: YesDate of Work: 1943Description: In this poster a pilot climbs into his P-40 fighter plane ready to test Hirohito’s best. Six kill flags emblazoned on the cockpit attest to his bravery and skill. Abbot Laboratories commissioned Schreiber to create this poster, which they then presented to the Treasury Department who adopted it for official use throughout the country. From 1941 to 1945, Schreiber was commissioned by the United States Army and Navy to do a series of works. One project in 1943 was a joint effort with his friend Thomas Hart Benton to capture life aboard a submarine. Following the war, Schreiber’s work became increasingly more abstract and today his paintings and lithographs are part of the permanent collections at many of the world’s greatest museums, including the Metropolitan Museum of Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, The White House Library and the Bibliothéque Nationale. With all of the fame he achieved, â€aeKeep Him Flying” is still the work that he is most identified with. Lida Orzeck came across more than 750 vintage war posters from World War I and World War II in her family’s home basement that her father, David Orzeck, a Brooklyn doctor, had meticulously collected.
