Poster has a border that looks like a rolled paper in red. In the center is a black and white drawing of Jesus Christ. The poster reads in black, "Reward for Information leading to the Apprehension of Jesus Christ/ Wanted - For sedition, criminal anarchy- vagrancy, and conspiring to overthrow the established government/ Dresses poorly. Said to be a carpenter by trade, ill-nourished, has visionary ideas, associates with common working people the unemployed and bums. Alien- believed to be a Jew. Alias: 'Prince of Peace. Son of Man' - 'Light of the World.' Professional agitator, red beard, marks on hands and feet the result of injuries inflicted by an angry mob led by respectable citizens and legal authorities." Arthur "Art" Young (1866 -1943) was an American cartoonist and writer. He is most famous for his socialist cartoons, especially those drawn for the radical magazine The Masses between 1911 and 1917.
