"Messengers of War" includes a major N.C. Wyeth (shown here) that we've never seen before. We also like the work of William H. Walker (2) from the 19-teens. Arthur William Brown, Jesse Willcox Smith, Dan Sayre Groesbeck, Charles Livingston Bull, James Montgomery Flagg (several), Charles Dana Gibson (several) and many others over the course of this feature, with many full page reproductions--in color, of course.
