Poster By Neysa Mcmein In Ww1~original With Added Penciled Character By Mcmein

**c1918-19POSTER CREATED BY NEYSA McMEIN**

*ORIGINALPRINTED PAPER POSTER DESIGNED/DRAWN AND SIGNEDBY NEYSA McMEIN WITH HER PENCIL DRAWING ADDED*

After graduation from high school Neysa studied atthe Chicago Art Institute. After her schooling, she became the lead designer for a large millinery institution. Sheleft her post and traveled to New York in 1911. New York not only allowed McMein to launch her career, but the city also launched her life as Neysa. Not long after her move to New York, World War I engaged the nation. McMein drew pictures that were used on wartime posters. Most of her work was used by the Red Cross in support of special drives. She became a YMCA entertainer and traveled to U.S. camps all over France. It was at this time in her life that she drew this poster for one of the “shows” that the entertainment committee consisting of several young women put on to entertain the troops. Her penciled in lady pushing the back side of Gertie is truly unique as it is in her own hand. The name of Anita Parkhurst was added after the poster was printed as they were not sure she would be able to preform due to illness.

In 1936, General Mills commissioned Neysa McMein to draw a portraitof a lady to represent someone in the kitchen they named "Betty Crocker". The artist combined features from female workers at General Mills for Betty Crocker's face.She became a premiere artist of magazine covers and was known for her "All American Girls." Her clients included McClure's, Saturday Evening Post, Woman's Home Companion, Colliers, and National Geographic magazines. She also worked on advertising campaigns for brands such as Colgate, Lucky Strike, and Cadillac. Her largest account came from McCall's Magazine. She drew a cover-girl every month for McCall's from 1928 to 1937. She also enjoyed acceptance at the Algonquin Round Table, or Vicious Circle, which met at the Algonquin Hotel in New York. The Circle encompassed the upper crust of writers, critics, actors, actresses and playwrights. Neysa left a legacy of wonderful portraits, etc. On May 12, 1949, McMein died.

It is in "as found" condition (see photo/fold lines/holes)along with a post cardshowing McMein with two other women from the Y.M.C.A. entertainment committee. The poster shows that Neysa added the third girl at the back end pushing "Gertie the dinosaurus" to show that the three of these girls preformed together in this particular show. This penciled lady is in her hand and therefore very special. This is a very special poster that would be a delight for a collector of unusual WW1 items as well as Neysa McMein's work and framing would show it off beautifully.
