DESIGNER UNKNOWN 29 1/8x20 7/8 inches, 74x50 1/2 cm. Condition B+: repaired tears and creases in margins and image; restored losses at edges and in corners. Japan. "Our enemies are blockading us, but we are at the ready. Vigilantly watching. We don't need a single inch of foreign lands, but ours - WE WILL NOT LET GO!!!" A powerful Soviet photomontage from the inter-war years. Although lacking the color red, which is so prevalent in the propaganda work of Gustav Klutsis, this is an extremely effective poster none the less. The artist creates palpable tension using converging diagonals, and the sense of Russian industrial power is aptly illustrated, as is the strength of the country's defense (in the form of a strong, young soldier, seen in a striking angle from below).
