        Feb. 06, 2024

        Original American WWII Vintage Poster by John Falter - If You Tell Where He Is Going

        Est: $600 - $1,000

        During World War ll the United States Government was very concerned about the need to keep troop movements confidential and for family members and friends of soldiers overseas to not discuss their loved ones travels and plans. There was a great fear of the enemy's agents overhearing some idle talk that could result in American lives lost. This bold graphic emphasizes that point. John Philip Falter (1910 - 1982) was an artist and illustrator famous for his The Saturday Evening Post covers. He studied at the Kansas City Art Institute and later moved to New York. He was influenced by the art of Frederic Remington and Norman Rockwell. In 1943 he enlisted in the Navy and designed over 300 recruiting posters for the American war. He became popular for the loose-lips-sink-ships theme in his posters, but also worked in the recruiting posters for the Waves. Falter was a prolific artist who depicted a wide range of subject matter in a variety of media. He illustrated over 40 books, and became an excellent portrait painter. In 1980, a documentary video: A View from the Standpipe: John Falter's World, was released by Nebraska Educational Television. This documentary provides more information about John's work, through one-on-one interviews in his Philadelphia location and shows a number of his paintings. This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in excellent condition. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.

        Est: $700 - $1,000

        During World War II, the United States Government used the poster medium to produce tens of thousands of different images in support of the effort of the troops around the globe. The United States Navy played a vital role in allowing for troop movement to Europe as well as serving to limit the Axis in its efforts to conquer more territory. Here, the air and sea implementations of the US Navy are on full display. Navy Day traces its roots to the disarmament years between WWI and WWII. It was established in 1922 by the Navy League of the United States. October 27th was chosen as the day to honor the Navy for its connection to the 1775 report to first purchase ships for the American Revolution; a step that was a precursor to the official formation of the Navy.

John Philip Falter was born in Plattsmouth, Nebraska although his family homestead was in Atchison, Kansas. He started his illustration career by selling his first artwork in 1930 to Liberty, a pulp magazine. His career flourished in pulp magazines until he became one of the most noted illustrators for The Saturday Evening Post. John Falter studied art at the Kansas City Art Institute and later moved to New York to get the right exposure and make career contacts. He opened a studio in New Rochelle, New York, which had long been a colony for illustrators, a community that included such artists as Frederic Remington and Norman Rockwell. During the 1970s and 1980s, after a career crisis brought on by the end of illustrated magazines, Falter turned to historical and American western themes, a passion of his. Looking back on his career, Falter commented that he had never painted a painting that he wouldn't like to paint over again; he always saw something he thought he could improve on. His output was prodigious, and by his own reckoning included over 5,000 paintings, many of which hang in museums and eminent collections. Overall Size: 37 5/8 x 46 5/8 in.

        Est: $600 - $1,000

        During the Second World War, there was a constant concern in the United States about inappropriate information being overheard by enemy agents both domestically and abroad. During 1942, a specific group of posters based on the title Loose Talk Can Cost Lives was launched. This is one of the images from that campaign, in this case cautioning sailors to be discrete when meeting new females. John Philip Falter (1910 - 1982) was an artist and illustrator famous for his The Saturday Evening Post covers. He studied at the Kansas City Art Institute and later moved to New York. He was influenced by the art of Frederic Remington and Norman Rockwell. In 1943 he enlisted in the Navy and designed over 300 recruiting posters for the American war. He became popular for the loose-lips-sink-ships theme in his posters, but also worked in the recruiting posters for the Waves. Falter was a prolific artist who depicted a wide range of subject matter in a variety of media. He illustrated over 40 books, and became an excellent portrait painter. In 1980, a documentary video: A View from the Standpipe: John Falter's World, was released by Nebraska Educational Television. This documentary provides more information about John's work, through one-on-one interviews in his Philadelphia location and shows a number of his paintings.

        Est: $20,000 - $30,000

        John Philip Falter (American, 1910-1982) Armistice Day Parade of 1922, Mexia, Texas Signed, copyrighted and dated '80' bottom left; also dated '1922' verso, oil on canvas (30 x 40 in. (76.2 x 101.6cm)) Footnote: Exhibited "An American View: The Hosek Collection of American Art," Pearl Fincher Museum of Fine Art, Spring, Texas, August 22 - December 20, 2009. Note Born in Nebraska, John Falter began his career in illustration earlier than most of his comtemporaries, langing a signficant job before even graduating. Soon, Falter decided to moved to New York, and worked with George Wright to produce commercial works that could appak to both magazines and private clients. His talent led him to produce no less than 185 cover illustrations for The Saturday Evening Post, as well as over 300 recruiting posters for the U.S. Navy, all marked by a fierce attention to detail (allowed by a remote vantage point) and the desire to render an idyllic vision of rural America. The present work showcases the artist's affinity to the West. As Dr. Lisa Peters states: "Located in northeast Linestone county Texas, Mexia was founded in the nineteenth century and named for a Hispanic hero of the Republic of Texas Army during the Texas Revolution. The town’s growth was spurred by the Houston and Texas Central Railway, which included a stop near the town, beginning in 1907. However, it remained a relatively small community until 1920, when the discovery of a natural gas deposit by the Mexia Gas and Oil Company led to a dramatic increase in the town’s population, from 3,482 to 35,000, over the course of a couple years. At one point in 1922, when local authorities could not control the town’s growth, martial law was declared. In 1922—the peak of the town’s oil production—thirty-five million barrels of oil were generated. (By the mid-1920s, when the initial oil boom ended, Mexia’s population, declined to 10,000.) It is the phenomenon of industry bearing down on a place that still carried on small-town life that Falter captured. The buildings along Main Street include prototypical village stores. Stores simply labeled 'Bakery,' 'Meat,' and 'Variety...Toys,' suggest that the town had only one of each kind of vendor. However, conspicuous in the lower left is a store labeled 'Oil Well Supplies,' demonstrating the infiltration of the oil company in the life of Mexia." Armistice Day Parade of 1922, Mexia, Texas depicts Mexia's celebration of Armistice Day on November 11, 1922, probably the first celebration of its type in the town. While it is unclear if Falter indeed participated in the event, Peters considers that the painstaking details in the painting suggest that he could have had access to photographs of the event. The viewer here is presented with " a marching band led by drummers, a brigade of firemen with an old fashioned fire wagon, once pulled by horses, and a line of mounted men in cowboy hats and chaps, one of whom holds a flag that reads 'San Juan Hill,' referencing the 1898 Spanish-American War battle that took place near Santiago, Cuba. A barefoot boy in a tricorn hat walks with his dog in the parade, holding a flag aloft. A crowd of polite spectators stand at the sidelines, some holding their hands to their hearts to pledge their allegiance, while others salute the soldiers. Behind Main Street is a typical country church, its spire blending in with the towers of the oil wells that rise across the length of the town and into the distance. The towers seem to mimic the church spire as if to be innocuous under the guise of a religious association. In his painting, Falter contrasts the scene of joyful patriotic pride with the menacing, surreal presence of the oil well towers. Having replaced any signs of the natural landscape, they appear to move stealthily on the town." Condition report: Frame: 37 3/4 x 47 3/4 x 1 3/4 in.
