Russian Posters


We have acquired a small group of posters which proclaim the power and glory of the Soviet Union. The collection includes charming pictures of children hard at work in school, posters paying homage to Lenin, depictions of Soviet industrial prowess and portrayals of the United States as a nation of aggression. Condition and size vary. Unfortunately we were unable to translate these pieces. We believe many of them date to the late 1950's, the height of the Cold War, while others are dated 1984.
