Tsarskiye Polki i Krasnaya Armiya [Tsar's Regiments and the Red Army], poster by Dmitry Moor (Dmitry Orlov, 1893-1946, Meritorious Art Worker of the Russian Federation), published by the Political Directorate of the Defense Council of the Republic, Moscow , 51 x 74 cm.
Interesting poster executed in the lubok style, fairly uncommon for Moor. E. A. Dinnerstein suggests that in this case, Moor was influenced by an earlier 1917 lubok poster, Za chto srazhalis' prezhde I za chto srazhayutsya teper' [What Had We Fought For Before, and What Are We Fighting For Now?] by Mayakovsky and Lebedev.
