116: Litvinov, N. Let There Be Peace, 1959
Da budet mir! [Let There Be Peace!], a poster by Nikolai Litvinov (b. 1930). Published by Sovetsky Khudozhnik, Moscow, 1959, 103 x 68 cm.
This poster proclaims Soviet support for the Peace movement, while simultaneously hailing the latest Soviet achievements in space exploration (the first Moon probe) and in the peaceful use of nuclear energy (the launch of the world's first nuclear icebreaker). This is probably the best-known Litvinov poster, remarkable in its economy of design. See also lot 123.
