Lot 0055 Details

Description
Agrak - Tagad [Before and Now], a Latvian-language poster by an anonymous artist. Published by Tsentrizdat for Tsentrsovnatsmen, Moscow, c. 1927, 107.5 x 71.5 cm.

Latvia gained its independence in 1918, but there remained sizeable ethnic Latvian colonies in Soviet Russia. This poster hails the improvements the October Revolution brought to the life of Latvian peasants that stayed in the Soviet Union. It was ordered by the Minorities Department of the Enlightenment Commissariat, an organization in charge of education and propaganda in the languages of ethnic minorities.

The Tsentrsovnatsmen acronym was used to denote this department in 1925-1929; this establishes the timeframe within which the poster was produced. The previous owner was of an opinion that it marks the 10th Anniversary of the October Revolution (1927).

Search extension words: Russian poster, Soviet poster.
