William McKee's Spirit of 18 The World Cry Food Keep Home Gardens Going calls attention to the desparate need for food around the world. McKee's design evokes memories of a colonial Fife and Drum Corps, implying that gardening is a patriotic duty. The artist converted fife, drum and gun into wheat sheaf, fruit crate and a bushel basket of food. The need was so great that the American government subsidized grain prices. Hard to find. 30x20 mint, conservation backed.
