Antique framed post-World War I Americans All! Victory Liberty Loan war bond poster, designed by Howard Chandler Christy in 1919.

“During World War I, the governments of belligerent countries issued bonds as a way to borrow money from its citizens in order to finance the war effort. The United States called these bonds Liberty Bonds. The bonds were issued four times during the war and a fifth time as a Victory Bond in 1919. Subscribing to the bonds became a symbol of patriotic duty. The government put on a massive sales campaign including posters, celebrity endorsements, air shows, stickers, and buttons to pressure the public into purchasing the bonds. Although individuals purchased war bonds valued between $5 and $100, half of the total sum was sold to financial institutions. The campaigns were quite successful raising $17 billion for the war effort.”

“Howard Chandler Christy (January 10, 1872 – March 3, 1952)[2] was an American artist and illustrator. Famous for the ""Christy Girl"" – a colorful and illustrious successor to the ""Gibson Girl"" – Christy is also widely known for his iconic WWI military recruitment and Liberty loan posters, along with his 1940 masterpiece titled, Scene at the Signing of the Constitution of the United States, which is installed along the east stairwell of the United States Capitol.

From the 1920s until the early 1950s, Christy was active as a portrait painter whose sitters included presidents, senators, industrialists, movies stars, and socialites. He painted Lt. Col. Theodore Roosevelt, and Presidents Warren G. Harding, Calvin Coolidge, Herbert Hoover, Franklin Delano Roosevelt, and Harry Truman. Other famous people he painted include William Randolph Hearst, the Prince of Wales (Edward VIII), Eddie Rickenbacker, Benito Mussolini, Prince Umberto, and Amelia Earhart. By 1938, Time magazine proclaimed Christy ""the most commercially successful U.S. artist.""
