DescriptionSpanish Civil War Propaganda (Junta Delegada de Defensa de Madrid, c. 1936). Very Fine- on Linen. Spanish Republican Poster (27.75" X 39.25") "Engrave On Your Heart," Amando Oliver Artwork.
From a civil war that ravaged Spain for almost three years, this poster, created by graphic designer Amando Oliver (1896-1996), encouraged Republican supporters to fight for their cause with the slogan "To Fight Is To Win." After joining a fine arts union which worked closely with the Junta Delegada de Defensa de Madrid during the war, Oliver created several posters for the Republican cause, including this striking stone litho poster. Light touchup has been applied to slight fold and surface wear, creases, as well as a couple of minor tears. Also addressed is a moderate tear in the lower left image. Some of these issues are still faintly visible, and there are unaddressed pinholes in the corners. Very Fine- on Linen.
Estimate: $500 - $1,000.
