    Crisis War (c.1930s). Rolled, Fine. Signed Original Pen and Ink Artwork (28.25" X 40.75") Dmitry Moor Artwork.
    Russian artist Dimitry Moor, born Dmitry Stakhievich Orlov (1883-1946), was arguably one of the great pillars of Russian propaganda. He started an underground print shop around the time of the Russian Revolution, then was banned by Tsar Nicholas II in 1907, before becoming an important artist figure during the Russian Civil War and into World War II. This Heritage first offering, is an original piece of artwork. It depicts his representation of the rising power of fascism as an overweight man in a tuxedo with Nazi cufflinks, holding over his head what is believed to be a grenade. There is a faint pencil gestural drawing on the verso of the same figure. The upper left corner area shows signs of use that different ideas or version were overlaid upon the original grenade drawing from the overuse of glue residue, paper lifts, and ink marks. The rest of the artwork shows creases, tears, pinholes, smudging and chips along the borders. There is white paper tape on the verso. The poster is signed by the artist in the upper right corner area.
