C1917 vintage WWI French lithographic poster by artist Georges Scott, who designed several wartime posters and was officially appointed Painter of the Army.

 

The poster depicts Marianne, the female personification of the Republic and a key symbol of France, leading French troops into battle. In flowing robes, Marianne raises a sword over her head with hand; in her other hand she clutches a battle-torn French flag. In white script, against a darkened, bomber-filled sky, are the urgent phrases "Pour la Drapeau! Pour la Victoire!" (For the Flag! For Victory!)

 

Designed to encourage the French public to support the war efforts by investing in Government bonds, this is a stunning piece of history not to mention an impactful piece of graphic art.

 

Currently housed in a simple Perspex frame.
