Title: Hunger Breeds Madness--Woodrow Wilson: ...

Publisher: United States Food Administration [ca. 1918-1919], (N.-pl.)

Publication Date: 1918

Binding: Poster

Book Condition: Very Good

Description:

Roughly 20 by 30.25 inches. Stone lithograph printed by Schmidt Litho in San Francisco. Produced late in the First World War or soon after the armistice, the poster promoted the US Food Administration (USFA), led by Herbert Hoover, which was responsible for feeding most of Europe in the immediate aftermath of the war. The image depicts a European city in the background and a family in the foreground. A woman sits slumped over her dead or dying child, an empty bowl at her feet. The boy's father stands, fist clenched, a torch in the other hand, staring at the city. President Wilson's quote, 'Hunger breeds madness' and the image suggests anarchy if Europe is allowed to starve. Grebs (1877-1964), a native of Germany, was the San Francisco art director for Foster and Kleiser Co., which produced this poster for the USFA. He also taught commercial illustration at the California School of Fine Arts (alongside Maynard Dixon), lectured at Stanford, and later headed his own commercial graphics firm. Mounted on linen. A few small tears have been repaired in the margins. With a few small areas of abrasion where the surface was apparently cleaned, mostly in the printed border. Bookseller Inventory # 61044
