- In this poster, the artist, Joseph Christian Leyendecker (1874-1951) portrays an honorable and stoic version of patriotism. Leyendecker and his younger brother Frank grew up in Chicago, sons of German immigrants. After studying art at the Chicago Art Institute, the brothers went to Paris to continue their art education, where they were exposed to the work of famous French artists including Toulouse-Lautrec. J.C. Leyendecker went on to become one of the country's best known illustrators creating no fewer than 322 covers for the Saturday Evening Post as well as numerous commercial assignments, most famously, the Arrow Shirt and Collar Company. His stye by 1918, when this poster was painted, had reached near photographic detail and and realism. He created another poster in this series: No. WP-114 for the U.S. Marines.
