While dining at the New York Yacht Club we immediately spotted this Howard Chandler Christy illustration among the other WWI posters which decorated the bar.  I often spot Howard Chandler Christy posters or prints around, so we thought it was a neat touch. 

However, the second time I walked by the image, it really pulled me in because it felt alive and had such luminescence.  Upon closer inspection, the illustration had a small plaque nearby which stated it was the original illustration for the famous and well-known "Christy Girl" recruiting poster. 

It was a really fun experience to stumble upon this, and to enjoy the original artwork in person for an evening.  Thank you to the New York Yacht Club staff who allowed the photo to be taken.
