Russian Revolutionary Posters: From Civil War to Socialist Realism, from Bolshevism to the End of Stalin Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The tumultuous events of the Russian Revolution were matched by dramatic shifts in graphic art and design that continue to influence our visual landscape. David King, an expert on Soviet art and an internationally acclaimed graphic designer, selected the more than 165 posters reproduced here from his own unparalleled collection. Constructivist posters, socialist advertising, 1920s film posters, classic photomontage, the heroic posters of the Great Patriotic War, biting political satire, and the cult of personality of the Stalin years are all represented, as are artists such as Alexander Rodchenko, El Lissitzky, Gustav Klutsis, Dimitri Moor, Viktor Deni, and Nina Vatolina. King sets the posters in context and profiles the art directors and creative directors whose vision played such a vital role in creating these striking works.
