soviet posters

Propaganda posters from the Bolshevik Era (1917-1921) through the Cold War (1946 – 1984).

Although posters were produced in Russia before the Revolution, they were overshadowed by the remarkable propaganda posters of the Soviets. Lenin takes responsibility for creating the first truly modern propaganda machine, from postage stamps and Mayday parades to monumental sculptures. Perhaps its most colorful, dramatic and original form was the poster.

Pictured… ‘From small partisan group to mighty Red Divisions’, 1921.
