Unfortunately there is not a lot of information available about the artist, Lucia Vernarelli. She was a feminist painter and print maker based in New York City, and she created a number of print works related to peace and ending the Vietnam War in the 1960s and 70s. Some really great graphics can be seen by clicking on the link connected to her name above.
Justseeds is very excited to be able to share these very rare, and very beautiful, posters documenting the movement to end the War in Vietnam.
