Alonzo Earl Foringer Biography

Alonzo Earl Foringer
Earl Foringer was a mural painter and illustrator. Born in Kaylor, Amstrong County Pennsylvania on February 1, 1878. Mr. Foringer was a student of H.S. Stevenson in Pittsburgh, Blashfield and Mobrey in New York. This poster has been cited by both military and feminist writers - clearly for different reasons! - and is the image most closely associated with the artist. In a very pale palette Foringer manages to convey many of the same emotions which French artists and posterists of the same time period were capable of.
