Military Posters & Prints

Since its beginning, war has inspired contemporary artists to create art as a means of reflection and introspection. The famed ancient battle of Thermopylae and the more modern Battle of Gettysburg have been interpreted by artists dozens of times. While not always accurate, wartime artwork often reflects the views of society on these great battles.

Likewise, propaganda posters and photographs used in war campaigns are a staple of all types of warfare. These images are collected by a small number of people, with most of the interest remaining in older pieces of propaganda, some dating as far back as the Civil War with the bulk of the items being from World War II.


Quick Facts

  • James Flagg created the famed Uncle Sam “I Want You,” poster for the United States Army in World War I
  • Famed Soviet graphic artist Vladimir Stenberg created Soviet propaganda and influenced modern graphic designers
  • Military prints survive from the Renaissance in the 15th century all the way up to the Pop era of the 1960s
