Description
Na zelenen'ky muravchaty luzhok ... [To a Lush Green ...], a cute lubok- (or, rather, rayeshnik-) style poster produced by VTsPO. Printed in Leningrad (which is somewhat unusual, as most VTsPO posters were produced in Moscow), c. 1925-1927, 49 x78 cm.

The anonymous artist faithfully illustrates a folksy poem about a determined group of poor peasants that at the advice of an activist form a consumer cooperative, overcome private competitors, and achieve prosperity. By the end of the poem, the peasants are enamored with the cooperation idea, and decide to take the next step, starting a cooperative farm and tannery.

By the nature of its operations, VTsPO, the Central Council of Consumer Cooperatives, maintained good connections in the advertising community. This assured the generally high artistic quality of VTsPO-sponsored posters.

Search extension words: Russian poster, Soviet poster.
