World War II Vintage Poster
By Alberto Vargas
About the image
In 1975, the Chicago Tribune newspaper conducted a survey among World War II veterans as to what they remembered most about the war-time period. The responses received most often were Glen Miller's band, and the Varga Girl. As a result, Alberto was commissioned to paint his own tribute to the war; his painting was featured in the bicentennial commemorative edition of the paper, published on December 7th, 1975.
This poster is a reproduction of Alberto's sensitive and moving painting of the many American women who loved and supported their husbands and boyfriends while the men fought overseas.
