Teheran Conference -commemorative postcards, 1943.

 

Three Knights Slay A Monster
These color postcards were painted to commemorate the Teheran Conference by placing contemporary characters in a Persian legend. According to the tale, an evil despot (Hitler) once ruled by terror, decapitating men to feed their brains to the snakes (shown as Italian and Japanese) that grew from his shoulders. Three knights (Roosevelt, Stalin, Churchill) appeared, first in a dream and later in reality, to destroy the tyrant and restore justice.
