This gallery created by McKinley Goozey features propaganda art. The works come from multiple wars and from multiple sides of the wars. Propaganda is interesting because of what it can tell us. There is the immediate message that it gives, which is often written out. Something like “Buy war bonds!” for example, and then there is the pictures that accompany the words. These can range from a variety of subjects. Perhaps a heroic squad of tired fighting men, a proud family, cartoon depictions of the enemy, or a scary image of what might happen to the country. The most interesting thing to do with propaganda is to look at it as a reflection of the thinking that was present at the time of the country in which it was produced. Propaganda can reflect how a country viewed itself, its enemy, or how it justifies war.
