Victor Semenovich Ivanov

Lenin 1870-1970

$1,100.00

Year: 1968

Condition: A-/ Slight tears at edges.

A centennial celebration of Lenin's birth was, as with most things of the Communist Party, ubiquitous during 1970. The prolific Soviet propaganda posterist Victor Ivanov was in his formative years when Lenin began leading the Bolshevik Revolution, and had spent his entire life in Moscow. So he created this two-sheet, life-size poster of the Communist leader with enthusiasm in 1968, a full two years before the centennial celebrations. It was one of his last creations. He died that year. The artist's signature is at lower right.
