Lot 0134 Details

Description
Sovetsky chelovek v kosmose [A Soviet Man Is in Space!], a poster by Lesegri artists, published by Znanie, Moscow, 1961, 90 x 60 cm.

As the viewer has probably noticed by now, every publishing house in Russia caught the Gagarin craze.

The Lesegri Collective was formed in 1957 by three graphic artists - Boris Lebedev (1921-?), Leonard Sergeev (1926-?), and Mark Grinberg (1925-?). Much of their work came from the “Znanie [Knowledge]” Publishing House and its flagship popular science magazine. In addition to posters, the artists designed stamps, illustrated postal envelopes, and postcards for the Communications Ministry.

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