The Most Famous American Artwork, the Original ”I Want You” World War I Recruitment Poster by James Montgomery Flagg

”I Want You” original Army recruitment poster from 1917 by James Montgomery Flagg. Perhaps nothing embodies the physical representation of America more than this poster, which finally put a face to ”Uncle Sam”, the nickname for the United States since the Revolutionary War. In the build-up to America’s entry into WWI, this image was originally featured on the 6 July 1916 cover of Leslie magazine with the text ”What are you doing for preparedness?”. The words ”I Want You” were added in February 1917, shortly after the U.S. intercepted code from Germany, encouraging Mexico to ally itself with Germany to fight the United States. Recognizing that war was imminent, the U.S. Army ordered this poster for recruitment efforts, and an American icon was born. Copyright information is printed along bottom margin, ”Copyright, 1917, Leslie – Judge Co., N.Y.” Poster measures 30” x 40.5”. In stunning condition, with folds smoothed against linen backing. Virtually no toning, with bright colors. A few minor creases, overall near fine condition. Sold for $10,625.

Scarce Poster for JFK’s 45th Birthday at Madison Square Garden in 1962, Famous for Marilyn Monroe’s Serenade of ”Happy Birthday Mr. President”

Very rare poster advertising ”New York’s Birthday Salute to President Kennedy” from 19 May 1962, famously remembered for Marilyn Monroe’s breathless serenade of ”Happy Birthday Mr. President” to JFK. Two-color letterpress poster in red, white and blue features a slew of famous performers including Jack Benny, Henry Fonda, Ella Fitzgerald, Judy Garland and Marilyn Monroe. The event was a resounding success, selling out all 15,000 tickets and raising over a million dollars for the Democratic party. Poster measures 14” x 20”, printed by the Amalgamated Lithographers of America, as noted at lower right. Pinholes to corners and light creasing, but overall a very good plus example of this highly collectible poster, with another copy selling for $8,750 at Bonhams in 2017. Sold for $7,854.
