Lot 0039 Details

Description
Chyortova Sklyanka i Lipetskiy p'yiantsa [Devil's Jar and a Drunkard from Lipetsk], a rayok-style poster by an anonymous artist. Published by Krasnaya Nov' Publishing, Moscow, 1923, 70.5 x 53 cm.

One of the earliest posters of the perennial Soviet campaign against alcoholism, the pervasive social ill that has proved immune to the efforts to curtail it by every Russian regime since ancient times. This particular poster was prompted by an article in the Bednota [The Impoverished] newspaper, dealing with the scope of the moonshining problem in the Lipetsk District of the Tambov region.

Search extension words: Russian poster, Soviet poster.
