Description
Soyuz nauki i truda - zalog vysokikh urozhayev [Union of Science and Labor Is the Foundation of High Yield Harvests], a poster by Viktor Koretsky (1909-1998, Meritorious Artist of the Russian Federation). Published by Iskusstvo, Moscow - Leningrad, 1948. 70 x 53 cm.

Ironically, publication of this poster was likely prompted by the triumph of Stalin's President of the Academy of Agricultural Sciences Trofim Lysenko over his opponents in the dispute over the role of genetics in agricultural research. For a brief period in 1948, Lysenko's critics found a patron in Yurii Zhdanov, the head of the Central Committee's Science Sector, but they were forced to recant after Stalin sided with Lysenko. Genetic research was banned, and scientists daring to question the Lysenko's “Creative Socialist Darwinism” theory that, among other things, promised to develop high yield crop varieties by subjecting several generations of seeds to cold and moisture before planting, were purged. The detrimental effects of the Stalin's fateful decision on Soviet biology and agriculture were felt for many years to come.

Search extension words: Russian poster, Soviet propaganda poster.
