New York Armory Show of 1913
This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Oscar Edward Cesare, 1886-1948, was a draftsman, political cartoonist, and painter who created posters and drawings during World War I supporting Allied efforts. They were published in various periodicals, and re-published in the magazine Cartoons between 1915 and 1917.

His "Remember the Bond," depicting a soldier caught in barbed wire, appeared in the New York Evening Post newspaper. Other war-time images in the collection of the University of Virginia include "Aid the Red Cross Here," "Bonds-Which?," "Loyalty Day," "The Spirit Goes Marching On," "The Strafers," and "A Year of This!"

In 1913, Cesare exhibited in the seminal New York City exhibition introducing modernism en masse to America, the Armory show.

After World War I, Cesare traveled to the Soviet Union making a number of drawings of the Kremlin, and other buildings including monasteries and churches, the landscape, and the people, including political figures like Trotsky, Lenin and Zinoviev, fifty-one of which are in the archives of Houghton Library and Harvard College Library, of Harvard University, Cambridge, Massachusetts.

The Library of Congress Prints and Photographs Division, in Washington, D.C. has an album of one-hundred twenty-seven reproductions of World War I cartoons and subjects relating to countries as diverse as Belgium, Bulgaria, China, England, France, Germany, Greece, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Mexico, Montenegro, Prussia, Russia, Serbia, Turkey, and the United States.

Oscar Edward Cesare died in 1948.
