Istreblyat’ nemetsko-fashistskikh merzavtsev! [Destroy the German Fascist Bastards!], a poster by Grigory Mirzoyev (1903-1990, Meritorious Artist of the Georgian SSR). Published by Sakhelgami, Tbilisi, 1941. 85 x 51 cm.

Back in the 1920s, Mirzoyev was one of the founders of SARMA, the Association of Revolutionary Artists of Georgia. The artist worked in Tbilisi and Baku. In our past sales, we have offered a number of Mirzoyev’s posters; judging by this sample, it appears that through the Stalinist period (with the possible exception of the war years), the artist specialized in panegyrical posters glorifying the Great Leader.
