Howard Chandler Christy (1873-1952) was an American artist who worked for many magazines but he is also well know for his contributions to the war efforts through his poster art. The Spirit of America is Christy's most beautiful design for the Red Cross, and was created just after the war when the relief organization was overwhelmed by returning soldiers. Americans were so patriotic that 30 million Americans joined during the war, nearly one third of the 90 million population!1919/USA
