Ségolène Le Men, former curator at the Musée d'Orsay and a professor at Paris X-Nanterre, examines French propaganda posters from World War I, an important but overlooked corpus of images. Unlike the situation in other countries, where governments initiated the production of posters, the appearance of posters in France in support of the war effort was largely the initiative of the artists who created them. Le Men explores the shared motivations of this group and the iconography of the posters they created.
