      • Come On! Buy More Liberty Bonds Original WWI Poster by Walter Whitehead 1918
        Feb. 06, 2024

        Come On! Buy More Liberty Bonds Original WWI Poster by Walter Whitehead 1918

        Est: $400 - $800

        When WWI broke out, American commercial art was still in its early stages; most artists were still classically trained painters. That painterly approach is clearly seen in this WWI poster by Walter Whitehead. On April 24th 1917, just 18 days after the US joining WWI officially, Congress authorized the Secretary of the Treasury to issue bonds of the United States to the extent of $5,000,000,000. Twelve committees were created, one for every Federal Reserve District. These committees were entrusted with the work of selling the bonds in their respective districts. Every city, town and village had its own Liberty Loan Committee as part of the war effort. Buying bonds soon became a patriotic duty and a reason for American pride. You were given buttons to wear when you bought your bonds, so you could show your patriotism. The posters promoting the Liberty Bonds were mainly based in these ideas of patriotism, pride and freedom. Walter Whitehead (1874-1956) was an American painter who went to the Art Institute of Chicago. His professional career focused primarily on depictions of colonial America. This is an Original Vintage Poster; it is not a reproduction. This poster is conservation mounted, linen backed, and in very good condition. There is minor chipping in the margin, and a small stain is present in the top left corner. Please inspect the photo for more details. We guarantee the authenticity of all of our posters.
