Vintage Red Cross Posters

Vintage Red Cross posters were highly popular military pictures that were prominent during World War I and II. These vintage recruiting illustrations not only encouraged women to join the Red Cross, but also promoted the creation of care packages and other military necessities. These works were considered just as important as the vintage recruiting illustrations for men and are some of the most illuminating wartime images for historic, social, and art.

These vintage recruiting illustrations are unique pop art prints and often portray women in military and Red Cross uniforms. These military pictures were highly important for women at that time because it gave them a chance to be involved in the war effort when women soldiers weren't allowed. Vintage Red Cross posters like 'WWI Poster' by Howard Chandler Christy and 'Help, Red Cross Nurse' are now considered iconic wartime images by modern art audiences and are often sought after for decorative and collecting purposes.

Many of these works contain elements of pop art images. These vintage Red Cross posters were often representational in nature and contained some form of typography. Images like 'Help the Red Cross' were actually monochrome prints that were classic portrayals of pop art images in vintage recruiting illustrations.

Military pictures are an important part of understanding history. These works, even the ones that aren't considered typical vintage recruiting illustrations like 'Knit Your Bit', provide valuable insight into how women were treated throughout one of the most harrowing instances of world history and help to remind modern viewers of the bravery and steadfastness of the Red Cross volunteers, even those who never left their homes.
