Description
Komsomol! Ovladevay aviatsionnoy tehnikoy [Komsomol! Master the Aviation Technology], a poster by Yang (pseudonym of Iosif Ganf, 1899-1973). OGIZ-IZOGIZ, Moscow - Leningrad, 1932, 55.5 x 81.5 cm.

The surprisingly large number of 1930s posters calling on Soviet youth to learn to fly can be explained only by the widespread fascination with aviation that affected even the propagandists. There really was no need for a sustained propaganda campaign - the lure of a prestigious aviator's career was virtually irresistible to a Soviet youth, and no flying school opening ever went unfilled. Yet Komsomol and the OSOAVIAKHIM Society, the two major patrons of Soviet military aviation, had a voracious appetite for aviation-related posters.

Iosif Ganf's work being offered here is one of the best examples of the genre. The artist published his posters under a pseudonym to avoid confusion with the works of his brother, the important satirical posterist and caricaturist Yulii Ganf.

Search extension words: Russian poster, Soviet poster.
