    Description

    Russian Propaganda Poster (Russia, 1920). Russian Political Poster (19" X 27") Propaganda.
    The bottom line of the poster reads: "Through the Wreckage of Capitalism...to the Worldwide Brotherhood of Workers." This is a unique find. It's the work of one of the earliest important Soviet political poster artists, Nikolai Kochergin. It's his famous "May-Day Poster," printed in 1920, and is considered a classic example of early Bolshevik iconography. The workers are striding confidently over the "debris" of British/German/US/ icons including gold coins labeled "Capitalism," etc. Note the Black and Arab workers on the right. An unrestored poster that displays signs of use. May include light edge or fold wear, minor surface crinkles, and light corner bumps. Please see full-color, enlargeable image below for more details. Folded, Fine/Very Fine.
