Edward Penfield is commonly known as the father of the American poster, having lived and primarily worked during the golden age of American illustration. Here, Penfield renders a young woman with strong, masculine features forcefully rowing a boat called "Victory" across a stormy sea. Made during the first World War, Penfield aimed to depict how women were taking on many positions traditionally thought to be men's roles since many men were at the battlefront. The United War Work Campaign for which this poster was made, raised money and morale for the war efforts.
