Original 1943 artwork from my private collection of WW2 posters. This was special artwork created for Fortune Magazine and is one of the most sought after posters from WW2. It measures approximately 11 x 14.
Without a doubt the most graphically designed propaganda image created during World War II! This Join A.R.P. (Air Raid Precautions) image portrays a powerful and frightening glance into the nuclear threat that technically is still around today.
The image is a wake up call of what could happen shown through the reflection of gas mask eyes; A clock ticking down to zero in one eye opening, and a nuclear blast on the horizon in the other. A STRONG, GRAPHIC, and POWERFUL image!
