基奇纳勋爵:史上最著名的一指(2)

基奇纳勋爵:史上最著名的一指(3)

Kitchener's hand gesture is equally provocative in its directness. "Pointing is individualistic, it singles out one person alone," says University of Hertfordshire psychology professor Karen Pine. "This makes you more engaged and places you under an obligation to respond."
基奇纳的手势兼具煽动性和直接性。“指点这个动作是针对个人的,它会使那个被指到的人被孤立出来,”赫特福德大学的心理学教授卡伦·佩恩说,“它让你觉得自己是参与其中的,使你处在一个不得不回应的位置。”


The illustrator's work also compared favourably with official recruitment posters of the time. As Richard Slocombe, senior curator of art at the Imperial War Museum, explains: "Poster design was a very mechanical process with little finesse. A large number solely used words."
插画家的作品也同样强过同时代其他的官方征兵海报。帝国战争博物馆馆长理查德·索坎比解释道:“那时的海报设计大多流于刻板且缺乏技巧。有很多甚至只有文字。“


In contrast, Leete was a renowned cartoonist "who knew how to connect with the wider public through his work and understood the importance of simplicity".
相比之下,利特是一个“知道怎么去通过他的作品与大众交流且理解简约主义的重要性”的著名漫画家。


Those four words, "Your Country Needs You", also proved effective. "They evoke patriotism and guilt in those yet to enlist without straying as far as emotional blackmail," says the National Army Museum's David Bownes, co-author of Posters of the First World War.
这七个字,“你的国家需要你”也被证实十分有效。“它们就像情感绑架,唤醒那些还没有入伍的人们的爱国心和愧疚感。”国家军队博物馆的工作人员,曾参与一战海报创作的大卫·鲍恩斯说。


The success of the image has arguably enabled it to transcend the legacy of Lord Kitchener himself. Leete's design has been copied by military recruitment campaigns from India to Canada to Germany. Four million copies of James Montgomery Flagg's Uncle Sam poster were printed by the US during WW1. Indeed, the image still features in the country's recruitment drives today.

这幅画如此成功,可以说它的影响力已超越了基奇纳勋爵本人。利特的构思先后后被印度、加拿大和德国效仿。美国在一战中印发了四百万份詹姆斯·蒙哥马利弗兰的山姆大叔的海报。实际上,直到现在,这幅画在美国的征兵活动中仍处重要地位。
