Kitchener: The most famous pointing finger


基奇纳勋爵:史上最著名的一指(1)

A recruitment poster of the stern-eyed Lord Kitchener has become a defining image of World War One. A clever illustrator's psychological trickery has spawned a thousand imitations, writes Adam Eley.
招兵海报上目光坚定的基奇纳勋爵已经成为第一次世界大战的标志性形象。亚当·艾利写道:这位机智的插画家巧妙的心理骗术催生了上千个模仿品


It is perhaps history's most famous pointing finger. 
这大概是史上最著名的一指了。


The image of British war minister Lord Kitchener's index finger unsettlingly aimed at the viewer remains immediately recognisable 100 years after its design. Still regularly copied in advertising, it has also served as a satirical motif in the media and inspired military recruitment campaigns across the globe.
在这张图片上,英国战争司令基奇纳勋爵用食指指着每个看向他的人。据此图被设计出来至今已有100年,人们仍然对它十分熟悉。这张图片现在被定期复制用于广告宣传,它也常在媒体中被用做具有讽刺意味的象征,或被用在军事招募中。常是媒体中用做表达讽刺意味的象征,也曾在世界各地的军事招募中用于鼓舞人心。)


Most people assume this image owes its fame to a government recruiting campaign during World War One.
多数人认为这幅图是因为在一战中被用作政府募军活动而闻名。


But of the estimated 5.7 million official posters printed in the UK from 1914-18, as few as 10,000 copies of this particular image were made.
但是,在1914至1918年间英国印发的约5,700,000张官方海报中,这张海报不过印发了10,000份。


It was initially intended only as a front cover design for the London Opinion magazine on 5 September 1914, created by professional illustrator Alfred Leete, supposedly in a single day. The cover bore the message "Your Country Needs You".
一开始,这张由插画家阿尔弗雷德·利特仅用了一天就创作出的插画,只不过是打算用来作为1914年9月5日伦敦舆论杂志的封面设计。该图传达着这样的信息:“你的国家需要你。”


The slogan was then slightly tweaked to simply "Wants You" and the image was privately produced as a poster shortly afterwards. But there is little photographic evidence of it on display in public places and only a handful of original copies survive today.
这句口号渐渐变成了简单的“需要你”几个字,且不久之后开始有私人将这幅插画制作成海报。但几乎没有相片证明这张海报曾出现在公开场合,现今能找到的最初的复制品也是屈指可数。
