Hugo Gellert’s original silkcreen, Allegory of Peace and Victory is a trial or working proof published between 1940 and 1950. Gellert almost exclusively uses two screens of red and black. Obviously, Hugo Gellert used the red screen as his base and then applied his outline blacks — note the inadvertent spots of black ink appearing on the baby’s legs and stomach. He then completed the design in pencil by drawing the outside dimensions and lengthening the flame above the baby’s left hand. This original silkscreen is printed upon thick, laid paper and with large, full margins, as described. Allegory of Peace and Victory is a fine example of the graphic art created by the Hungarian/American artist, Hugo Gellert.
