Print Collection 12: The Original Art

Though the Collection consists primarily of printed material, several included pieces are original ink and wash cartoons from British artist Bruce Bairnsfather and Dutch artist Louis Raemaekers. Like many popular wartime artists represented in the Collection, Bairnsfather and Raemaekers contributed their illustrations to periodicals as well as to the Allied propaganda effort during the war. The cartoons that can be found in the Collection in original form also appeared as posters, postcards and other reproductions. See more about the original art in the Collection.
