The translation for this impressive Dutch poster ('strengthened through work') gives the viewer no doubt of the message: a laborer is carting a heavy burden, the smokestacks of industry are billowing and it is through hard work that progress will be made. The poster is highly stylized in the art deco manner which uses strongly symmetrical geometric forms and designs and strong clear colors. ARTIST: Jean Walther (possibly Jean Walter Nieuwenhys - Belgian 1900-1980).
