Description
Lenin i teper' zhivee vsekh zhivykh. Nashe znan'e, sila i oruzhie [In Our Times, Lenin Is Alive, More Alive Than Those Now Living. He Is Our Knowledge, Our Strength, and Our Weapon], a poster by Naum Karpovsky (1907-1978). Published by IZOGIZ, Moscow, 1959, 93 x 66.7 cm.

References to space exploration were common in Soviet propaganda posters of the period. This poster's title comes from an important poem by Mayakovsky.

Karpovsky was a highly regarded posterist between 1948 and 1959, receiving awards in three major All-Union poster competitions. A student of the major Ukrainian avant-garde theater artist M. Petrizky, he started producing posters in Kharkov in the late 1930s. As indicated by the honorific title, he spent some time in Kazakhstan before eventually settling in Moscow.

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