Howard Chandler Christy

No. WP-119
Fight or Buy Bonds
The well known illustration artists who created posters for the war effort were happy to volunteer their talents because they were true patriots and cared deeply about America. Most had also studied art in Paris and were eager to see the U.S. enter the War on the side of France. The mission of posters like this one was to inspire all Americans to do their part. For those who could not sign up for military service, they could do their part by buying bonds. Women at that time could be nurses but not join the military, so Christy is portraying this young woman in a patriotic and courageous way. The way she is raising the flag has wonderful power in the imagery. But the art has another message: while war was raging in Europe, the women of America were fighting another war of independence, the struggle for suffrage…. the right to vote and take their rightful place in building a great nation.
