Description
Navigatsiya v kosmose otkryta! [Space Navigation Season is Open!], a poster by Nikolai Pil'shikov (1914-?). Published by Voyenizdat, Moscow, 1961, 88 x 59 cm.

Another emergency Voyenizdat production after Titov's flight. The top part is a general space-themed design that has little to do with the “text only” bottom part. Most likely, Pil'shikov, who regularly worked with Voyenizdat (the Defense Ministry publishing arm) as a books illustrator, was asked to add new text to a lithograph that he had submitted earlier. We have not seen many Pil'shchikov posters, but he was a respected artist that would definitely find a more appropriate graphic solution if given the topic in advance.

Last year, we auctioned a poster jointly produced by Pil'shikov and A. Laktionov at the very start of WWII. Pil'shikov was drafted into Red Army in 1939; at the time, he was an art student in Leningrad. He became a military aviator and went through the war flying combat missions, mostly on the Leningrad Front. He produced some fine graphics through the war; many of his works were published as postcards during the Siege. His close ties with Voyenizdat probably stem from his war-years experiences.

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