This visually dramatic and striking poster is really a high point in the American posters produced during WWI. The artist John Scott Williams depicts a warlike Columbia figure gripping sword and shield and wrapped in an American flag. A huge screaming eagle screeches by as an army marches past silhouetted under ominous skies. The American posters produced for the Fourth Liberty Loan campaign appear more apocalyptic than those produced for other Liberty Loan campaigns and this one is arguably the most pronounced example of that trend.
This original antique poster has been professionally linen backed. A couple short tears and other minor imperfections have been expertly repaired and there is a small area of replaced loss in the margin at the top center not affecting the image. This poster retains bold colors and displays beautifully. Overall condition is very good.
