Description:
This poster by famous portrait artist Ernest Hamlin Baker reflects a distinctive 1930s style of illustration. Rays of light, emanating from the double-barred cross emblem of the NTA, illuminate scenes of health personnel working in laboratories and caring for patients. The figures, design, and composition of this poster reflect a modernist style appropriate for the promotion of newly developed scientific solutions to an age-old problem. A series of illustrations described as "modern weapons" in the fight against tuberculosis include a man looking into a microscope, a nurse and doctor monitoring a woman receiving intravenous treatment, a young boy receiving an injection, and an X-ray displayed prominently in the background. As part of the campaign to solicit contributions, the message in the bottom corner of the poster suggests, "Christmas Seals help fight Tuberculosis."
