Anzac Poster – The iconic Anzac poster, designed by John Pilsworth (an artist and teacher at the Royal College of Art in London, England), immortalizes the centennial commemoration of World War One. The original was made for a collaborative effort between artist Florentine Dali, Dora Maurer, and sculptor Josephine Eller to celebrate the landing of the Allied forces on the shores of Gallipoli. The original was destroyed in the Second World War when the Germans attacked the harbor at Gallipoli. A new Anzac Poster was created in Florence to be displayed in the church of San Bartolomeo in Italy. This time restored it and placed it on the wall of the church.
How to Know About Historic Posters
There are two versions of the Anzac poster. The first, the more traditional styled posters, depicts Jesus on the cross while he rocks back and forth giving the Amen! message from the Angel Gabriel. The second poster, which is quite rare, shows the crucified Jesus along with the names of those who died for their faith. The words of the historical plaque on these two posters are written in French and Italian, respectively.
Another great addition to the Anzac Memorial Museum in Rome is the Paul Gauguin Authentic Autographed Postcard. These are the reproductions of the original 12 paintings done by Gauguin during the early years of World War I. The artwork is based on the masterpieces of Vincent O’Sullivan. O’ Sullivan is an award-winning British artist who was a renowned war artist before the First World War. His work was frequently exhibited across the UK and Europe before the First World War broke out.
