Description

Donnez Votre Or, c’est du blé pour la France

Gouache and pencil on thin board, circa 1914.
Preparatory drawing for a WWI effort support poster.
Apparently it was never created into a lithograph, as could be expected.
Signed in pencil.

Composition by the artist, or possibly one of his children.  A number of war posters with compositions by children were printed in large lithographic editions.  They have, however, become scarce.
