Francisque Poulbot (1879-1946) was a gifted painter,illustrator and sculptor who designed a number of posters as well as illustrations that were published in a variety of publications. He spent many years living in Montmartre to the point where les Petis Poulbots, the street urchins of Montmartre in Paris, were affectionately nicknamed after him. During the First World War, he drew patriotic posters and postcards, for which he was put under house arrest under the German occupation of France during World War II. This is one such poster. Created in 1920, it was designed to persuade the population to buy National war bonds through the Banque de Paris et des Pays-Bas.  A poor, innocent girl dressed in a tattered dress resembling the French flag, stands bare-foot among ruins reminding us of the devastation of the Great War and its grim consequences on countless innocent people.
