The outbreak of WWI necessitated urgent monetary relief for both Europe and Palestine. Burke's poster for the Jewish Relief Campaign that began in 1914 is one of the most sought-after posters ever created by a Jewish organization in America. The poster employs an allegorical figure - a serene benefactor meant to symbolize America - feeding a refugee family at dawn, with the Statue of Liberty and the New York skyline in the distance.
This poster features an overprinting for the New Jersey Drive for $1 million (out of an estimated total of $20 million). In fine condition, this is a beautiful historical document.
