Description
Wszyczy do Szeregow Bezboznikow Wojujacich [Join the Militant Atheists Society], a Polish language poster by Abram Starczewsky (1897-1973). Published by the All-Ukrainian Publishing House of AKhChU, the Association of Artists of Red Ukraine, Kharkov, 1931, 102.5 x 65.5 cm.

The slogan at top of the poster roughly reads, “In the country building socialism there is no place for religious silliness.”

Painter and graphic artist Abram Starczewsky graduated from Odessa Art School in 1916. A veteran of the Civil War, he soon moved to Kharkiv, at that time the capital of the Ukraine, where he became one of the leading Ukrainian political posterists. He was also a highly regarded book illustrator.

Polish language propaganda posters were regularly published in the Ukraine before WWII, as its population included a large Polish-speaking minority, but these days they are anything but common.

Search extension words: Russian poster, Soviet poster.
