Description

The Red Cross emblems are emblazoned on waving flags with multicolored billowing clouds behind them.

In the left corner, N.C. Wyeth stamped in capital letters. Titled “Answer the Call” and dated 1953, it is a lithograph of a painting that Wyeth had done years before (he died in 1945).

It is a beautiful advertising poster for the American Red Cross, and in perfect condition.

Wyeth, patriarch of a family of artists whose son Andrew is the best known, created the painting for the poster in 1933. He was among several artists and illustrators who were commissioned by the Red Cross from World War I to the 1950s to create original artwork for its magazines and posters.

The others included James Montgomery Flagg (best known for the Uncle Sam “I Want You” recruiting poster), Norman Rockwell and Howard Chandler Christy – all of whom also created works for U.S. government agencies. The works were first produced by the artists in such mediums as oil, pastel, watercolor and charcoal.
