"Over There! Posters from World War I" at the Museum of Fine Arts, Boston

Having opened in commemoration of the 100th anniversary of the outbreak of WWI, this MFA exhibition features fifty wartime posters from the United States and Europe—including select examples from Britain, France, Germany, and Russia. A large portion of the works were used to encourage enlistment in the US Army, Navy, Marines, and Air Service. Other works appealled to the American citizenry to buy war bonds, conserve food, support the Red Cross and other relief agencies, and maintain a strong work ethic on the home front. Many of the works have not been on view since 1938. Further this is the MFA’s first display of the newly acquired poster I Want You for U. S. Army (1917) by James Montgomery Flagg, which was the most famous image from WWI and the most successful recruitment poster of the war.
