About this item
I Want You for the U.S. Army Recruitment Poster by James Montgomery Flagg is the perfect addition to your home. Epitomizing American patriotism, honor and duty, artist and illustrator, James Montgomery Flagg (1877 - 1960) holds a place in U.S. history for creating his iconic Uncle Sam and enlistment posters to support the war effort during World War I. Flagg used his own face for that of his now-famous Uncle Sam to avoid paying a model. A child prodigy, he was hired at age 12 to draw for St. Nicholas Magazine, based upon a few pencil sketches he'd drawn in Central Park, and he was a staff member of Life and Judge by age 15. Nearly every major publisher featured his artwork, and he was inducted into the Society of Illustrators Hall of Fame in 1980. This exceptional art print is created using a sophisticated printing process known as giclee, from the French word to spray. Using the highest levels of precision available, the process delivers a fine stream of ink to saturate the fibers of the watercolor paper, resulting in pure, rich color and remarkable detail. Museums and galleries around the world favor giclee prints. The high-quality paper (235 gsm) is acid free with a smooth surface resulting in vivid, pure color and exceptional detail. An acrylic coating protects the stunning print from dust, moisture and fading. Handcrafted in the USA. Mounting hardware is included.
