Franklin D. Roosevelt 1936 Campaign Poster

About

“The Man with A Heart, The Party With a Soul”: FRANKLIN D. ROOSEVELT POSTER, made for his 1936 presidential run, the best of all known examples across all four of the FDR campaigns, extremely rare and with what is perhaps the best slogan in 19th or 20th American politics: Large scale presidential Campaign poster, printed in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in 1936 for Franklin D. Roosevelt’s run that year for the White House. Across all of FDR’s four successful campaigns, in 1932, 1936, 1940, and 1944, this is undoubtedly the best example. With wonderful colors and graphics, it is also exceedingly rare and this is one of just three examples that I am aware to have survived from one of America’s most well-remembered presidents, who served in office longer than any other and steered the nation through the Second World War. Along the top and bottom registers, in bold and interesting script-style lettering, is a two part slogan that reads: “The Man with a Heart; The Party with a Soul.” Without question, this is the best Campaign slogan that I have personally encountered on any American political item in American history. One can imagine this message, being delivered to an American populous reeling from the pain of the stock market crash and the great depression. Below the upper register is an image of FDR between two stars. The portrait sketch bears a 1933 copyright and the signature of the artist. Beneath this are the words “Vote Straight Democratic for All Roosevelt Candidates,” accompanied by a large “X.” The colors are red, white, and blue throughout, which is a very positive trait for a political object as not all were in a patriotic scheme. The graphics are terrific. There are tiny brass grommets in each corner. The “Union Bug” (denoting that the poster was printed with union labor) appears in the lower right-hand corner. This identifies it as having been produced in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Mounting: This is a pressure mount between 100% cotton twill, black in color, and U.V. protective acrylic. The black fabric was washed and treated to reduce and set the dye. The black-painted, hand-gilded and distressed molding is Italian. Condition: There is some edge wear around the perimeter with minor associated loss. In one area along the left edge there is a small patch of similar colored parchment to underlay two very small chips. There is modest foxing and staining and there are small tack holes in each corner. Overall condition is excellent for a poster of this era and especially one of this stature. Frame size (H x L): 53.25" x 39.5" Flag size (H x L): 42" x 28".
