Germany's answer to James Montgomery Flagg's "I Want You." The caption reads simply "And You?" and was a call to Germans to vote for the Nazi party. "Hohlwein's stunning poster, used with different text by both the Steel Helmet and the German National People's Party in the elections of 1932 and 1933, transforms man and helmet into an inhuman sculptural mass imposed on a schematic imperial German flag." (Paret p. 109). This is the smaller format. Paret 156, Hohlwein / Stuttgart 282, Rhodes p, 47, MoMA 481.1987.
