30: [kochergin, N.]. Woe To The Capitalist ..., 1920
Ege, kapitaliastu gorye! Zagonim yego v Cherno More [Woe to a Capitalist! We’ll Push Him into the Black Sea], a poster signed N.K. in the plate and attributed to Nikolai Kochergin (1897-1974, Meritorious Artist of the Russian Federation). Printed at Levin Printing Works, Kharkov, 1920. 102 x 70.3 cm.
An attractive poster in the lubok-style of ROSTA Windows. The attribution to Kochergin seems well reasoned - the artist was at the time put in charge of poster production in Kharkov, and later was sent to organize ROSTA poster production in the Caucasus.
Another copy of this poster realized $2,300 (hammer price) in our February 2012 sale.
