Description
Otchizna! Progressa i mira zvezdu ty pervoj zazhgla nad zemleyu. Slava nauke, slava trudu! Slava Sovetskomu stroyu [Motherland! You Were the First To Spark a Star of Peace and Progress Above the Earth ... Glory To Science, Glory To Labor! Glory To the Soviet System!], a poster by Valentin Viktorov (1909-1981). Published by IZOGIZ, Moscow, 1958, 89.5 x 56 cm.

An early space poster produced shortly after the launch of the third Soviet satellite, Sputnik 3. It was the only Soviet satellite launched in 1958.

Moscow graphic artist Valentin Viktorov produced many space-related posters, partly because references to Soviet space achievements became a prominent topic of Soviet propaganda and partly because of his connection to the popular science magazine Znanie Sila [Knowledge is Power] magazine. Viktorov ‘s first posters date to the mid-1930s.

Search extension words: Russian poster, Soviet poster, space poster.
