FDR. USA. Works Progress Administration Art. 1935-1943.

Everyone knows about the New Deal. FDR’s a hero of the people.
But who knew that the WPA (the largest New Deal agency) made such great art? Not me apparently.
Terrific posters on everything from work, to venereal disease, to war-time propagandizing. Check out a great set of these WPA posters here.
