1939 Christmas Seals poster by Rockwell Kent (1882-1971).
Signed lower right in the plate. 15″ by 11″ on heavy weight poster paper.

Kent was commissioned to design all of the paraphernalia for the National Tuberculosis Association, including the seals, posters, and a billboard. He met with President Roosevelt to show him one of his designs (see supporting illustration). The caption for the New York Times image refers to the original painting for the poster, which is incorrect. It is an example of the seal design.

The poster shows fading, otherwise, in good condition.
