Wladyslaw T. Benda wasn't particularly known for his 'propaganda' posters, but of all his works, this is one of my favorites

Great looking poster!  Do you know if it is an original or a reproduction?  It's cool either way, though.

I actually wasn't sure from the image if this poster was from WWI or possibly the Boer War.  In case anyone else was wondering a Google search confirmed it is in fact from WWI.

thanks Deke.  It is a 1914 original, 40x60.  Its huge!  (you can see a fold line going through it) The art is from a British woman, Lucy Kemp-Welch, who was commissioned by the government to paint the image for the poster.  This was the last year of enlistment until conscription the following year.

Amazing and up for grabs from Grant Zahajko Auctions, LLC in WA

More travel poster than propaganda at the time, but in hindsight - a very foreboding piece!
