Soldier In Italy 10th Mtn Division Poster
This poster is based on an original painting by the late Jacques Parker, who was a member of America's first ski-mountain troops, the elite and legendary 10th Mountain Division. During World War II, Parker chronicled the saga of the 10th in combat with drawings and paintings that were published in the 10th's own newspaper, The Blizzard. He drew this illustration showing the famous image of the ski trooper while serving in Italy during the winter of 1943. This original was drawn in pencil on an 8 x 10 inch pad which he sometimes carried in his rucksack when pads of paper were available.
Additionally, Jacques was such a great artist that he chronicled the War he was experiencing each day on any scrap of paper or napkin that he could find. Here are some of his hand draw images, that were used to tell the story of the War and time following:
