Bruce Museum Patriotic Persuasion: American Posters of the First World War

01/20/2018 to 06/10/2018

One Museum Drive, Greenwich, CT Phone: 203-413-6735 .

Patriotic Persuasion: American Posters of the First World War features a selection of works from the "Great War" donated to the museum by Beverly and John W. Watling III. The exhibition, which will be on view through June 10, 2018, commemorates the centennial of the entry of the United States into that epochal conflict. The United States' involvement in World War I lasted only 20 months, from April 1917 to November 1918, but the nation's military and propaganda strategies were of enormous consequence. In the era of radio and film's infancy, posters were an essential medium; there were more than 20 million posters printed from about 2,500 designs. Many of the posters on display in Patriotic Persuasion were originally collected by Mr. Watling's stepfather, Charles B. Warren, Jr., and his brother, Wetmore Warren, in Washington, D.C., where their father, Charles B. Warren, served on the staff of the Judge Advocate General during the war.
