Story of this Masterpiece by Lloyed Harrison

Created in 1918.

Imagine living in 1918: WWI is finally over and people are looking forward to more peaceful times. Life is slowing returning to normal and US-American housewives are also returning...to their kitchen stoves. There is only one problem: the food supply chain is not what it used to be. Due to shortages, some groceries became way more valuable than the other.

How do you solve not being able to create more supply? Easy, you simply shift the demand. That's how US-American artist Lloyd Harrison ended up designing this gorgeously detailed propaganda-poster for the US Food Administration, promoting Corn as - not only "appetizing, nourishing, economical" but boldly "the food of the nation".

Decorate your kitchen, dining room or even storage with this colorful vintage-artwork showing a young woman taking a big scoop of corn-flour while preparing various yummy corn-dishes like cup- and pancakes. Who needs a Filet Mignon or Bouillabaisse anyways, when there is grits and hominy? That's the vibe!
