  • About the Product
  • About the Artist
  • Customer Reviews
Howard Chandler Christy’s “Gee!! I Wish I Were a Man” Navy recruitment poster was a rallying cry for both patriotism and feminism. Christy (1873 – 1952), patriotic creator of the beautiful and independent Christy Girl, initially became a celebrity for the scenes he drew from the Spanish-American War directly from the battlefront for several magazines. Although he was almost exclusively known for the more than 6,000 images of his Christy Girls which were printed in numerous national magazines Christy also painted allegories, historical works, and portraits of celebrities.
Beloved American illustrator Howard Chandler Christy (1873 – 1952) was synonymous with his iconic Christy Girl, a beautiful, independent woman whose 6,000 images were featured in numerous national magazines and patriotic posters. Originally illustrating Spanish-American war scenes directly from the battlefield, Christy became a portraitist when he came home. He painted socialites, actors and presidents, completing a staggering 30 works in a single year. Christy, admired for his smooth, spontaneous brushwork, also painted allegories, historical scenes, and landscapes.

        This was the poster my husband's father saw when he joined the Navy in WWII. My husband displays it proudly on his office wall for all to see. It has all the right colors just like the original poster in the 40's. THANK YOU !!!!
