      • Authentic World War I Poster - Feed a Fighter by Wallace Morgan 1918
        Jun. 21, 2022

        Authentic World War I Poster - Feed a Fighter by Wallace Morgan 1918

        Est: $400 - $800

        World War I was a hard fought struggle that was waged with a great deal of use of trenches where soldiers were compelled to stay in the battlegrounds for extended periods of time. The message to the domestic population in this poster by Wallace Morgan was to conserve food and waste nothing so that all fighters and their families could be better taken care of. Morgan was one of a handful of artists selected by General Pershing to create posters during the War and they were provided with broad access to the soldiers in the fields, hence the very realistic portrayal of the fighter in this poster. Wallace Morgan (1875 - 1948) grew up in Albany, New York where his family had moved shortly after his birth. Upon graduation from high school he returned to his birthplace, New York City, to pursue a career in art. He studied at the National Academy of Design while working at the New York Sun as a part-time artist. Morgan went on to open his own studio and his ability to sketch quickly was put to effective use during the War. His work projects an air of activity and movement into scenes of combat. A number of his pictures also reflect his apparent interest in the many columns of troops, animals, and equipment that moved ceaselessly across the battlefields of France. After the war Morgan returned to work in his studio in New York City. 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.

        Dec. 06, 2015

        ORIGINAL MORGAN WALLACE 1920s ART DECO CENTRAL PARK

        Est: $700 - $900

        Original Wallace Morgan (1873-1948) Charcoal / Graphite Drawing in Central Park. The drawing was done in the 1920s. Morgans work rarely comes up for auction. Matted and Framed under glass. In frame measures 20.50x20x1.25 with image at 12x12. Weight 5 pounds. PROVENANCE: The Estate of noted American Illustrator R. John Holmgren, a friend and colleague of the artist. A founder of The Society of Illustrators, Wallace Morgan was a very prolific artist whose works depicting the human condition showed spontaneity and zest. His subjects, taken from all strata of society, were drawn with humor and compassion and knowledge of the characteristics of each. He most often worked in charcoal but also did some pen and ink and color wash illustrations. A free hand artist, he never used photography. Born in New York City in 1873, Morgan, whose father was an art instructor, attended classes for six years at the National Academy. In his 20’s, he was a staff artist on several New York newspapers including: The Sun, The Herald and the Telegram. His quick sketch style and keen eye for characters were perfected during these years. Later, during World War I, while serving in the AEF as an official artist in the company of Charles Dana Gibson, Jack Sheridan and C.B. Falls, he produced volumes of sketches of battles, Generals and the soldier’s day to day routine. Julian Leonard Street, one of the best known authors of the early 1900’s, called upon Morgan to accompany him on his travels which were to be serialized in Collier’s Weekly. Abroad at Home appeared during 1914 and American Adventures during 1917. He also illustrated The Red Cross Girl, one in a series by Richard Harding Davis. The other Davis volumes had been illustrated by the likes of Christy, Gibson, Gruger and Emerson. One of the founders pf The Society of Illustrators, it was Wallace Morgan and C.D. Williams’s idea to bring the loose knit group of artists, who met irregularly in one of several New York restaurants, together for a monthly smoker (tobacco supplied). As an outgrowth of the smoker, the Artists and Models Show followed and in the late 20’s hit Broadway under the Shubert Brothers banner. The royalties it produced fulfilled Morgan’s dream of a permanent headquarters for the Society, at first, a blacksmith shop on 24th Street and in 1939 its present location on East 63rd Street. He served as President from 1929 to 1936 and was an active voice for many years thereafter. Morgan was quite active in other New York organizations as a member of The Players, Century and Dutch Treat Clubs. He was made an honorary member of the Art Students League where he had taught for several years and in 1947 was elected to the National Academy of Design. An active artist even in his later years, Morgan illustrated a noteworthy series for Carstairs Whiskey in 1947. He died the following May at the age of 75. His work is included in several museums collections including The Metropolitan Museum of Art in NYC.
