Oscar Cesare Orignial Pen and Ink w/ Watercolor " Too Late Again" WW I Illustrator

Oscar Cesare is considered one of the top illustrator of the 20th century and even displayed some of his work at the legendary 1913 Armory Show in New York City.
He was a major cartoonist and illustrator for the New York Sun as well as numerous other high profile magazines and news papers of the 20th century.
Oscar Cesare was an opponent of America's involvement in WW I and used his career to promote his ideals.
Here is a piece that is not so much as opposing our involvement in the war but showing the strong hand and conquering of the Austrian/ German Army of Montenegro and Serbia. By 1916 the Allies could not stop the advancement of the Austrian/ German Army. Shown here as the Allies hand trying to reach the struggling and crushed Montenegro and Serbian Nation.
A great piece of WWI history and memorabilia.
