Russia: Khudozhnik RSFSR, [probably 1960s]. [13” x 17.25”] offset lithograph. With mild edgewear and a small inch-long stain to the upper half of poster. With some minute closed tears, nevertheless in very good condition.

This soviet agitprop poster instructs the proper behavior of the soviet subject. Created by an artist associated with the Boevoi Karadash (or “military pencil”) group, a collective of Leningrad based designers who became well-known between 1941 and 1945 for an important group of agitprop posters and satirical drawings. The group was revived in the mid-1950s and was active until at least the late 1970s. This work was part of a series entitled “what sort of behavior!” probably aimed against curtailing various anti-social behaviors, such as excess drinking. A vibrant example of soviet design from the later half of the 20th century.
