Original Large Framed, American WW2 1940-1944 Colour Lithograph ‘Belgium Fights On’ Propaganda / Recruitment Poster By The Belgian Artist R. Sturbelle Published By The Belgian Information Center New York USA. Sn 15182 - 15182

After the German occupation of Belgium in May 1940, a Belgian Government in Exile was set up in London, while in 1942 the Belgian League was established to organise resistance to the Germans. The purpose of this poster was to encourage support within America for the Belgian resistance cause. In the diagonal sweep of the composition, the image of the bound prisoners facing the German firing squad is counteracted by the avenging Belgian soldier and the thrust of the fighter aircraft. The artwork was by R. Sturbelle, whose name suggests he was himself Belgian and the posters were published between 1940 & 1944 by the American Belgian Information Center, New York. The Colour lithograph paper poster retains all of its original vivid colour and has no staining or damage. The composition comprises a cluster of four bound prisoners in the upper left corner before a firing squad of helmeted soldiers who stand on the diagonal at the right. The central image shows three war planes flying in formation. In the lower centre, printed in full colour, is a charging soldier thrusting his bayonet, seen from above. Large red type is printed across three lines: "Belgium Fights On". The signature of the artist “R. Sturbelle” is printed in grey in upper right corner. “Published by the Belgian Information Center 630 Fifth Street New York City” is printed in black across the lower margin of the poster together with a small printed Union Registration mark. The poster is mounted in a later dark wood frame with clear laminate plastic window. The poster in its frame measures 32” x 26” x ½” and the rear is mounted with cord for wall hanging. NB. Due to the fragile nature of this piece it is only available with frame within the UK and delivery/ collection will be by arrangement. Sn 15182
