This poster designed by Polish artist W. T. Benda (1873-1948) circa 1918 for the Near East Relief which was was an American charity organized in response to the Armenian genocide in 1915. It was renamed the American Committee for Relief in the Near East in 1918, and would exist until 1930. For those Armenians that were not already affected by the the genocide the dismantling of the Ottoman Empire during WW1 left many others homeless and destitute.
This poster depicts a young, forlorn girl rendered in dark charcoal and is reminiscent of many pre-raphaelite women painted by Rosetti and others at the turn of the century. A highly evocative and moving design.
