Описание в каталоге

This rare poster is one of only a few known surviving impressions printed by the Russian avant-garde artist group UNOVIS in 1919-20.  Yevgeny Kovtun, former curator at the Russian State Museum, St. Petersburg, explained that UNOVIS required large editions of this poster and therefore two matrices were used.  The Lenin Library, Moscow houses the only known impression of the alternate 1919-1920 state.

Another impression of Beat the Whites with the Red Wedge was sold in these rooms April 29, 2011 (lot 57).  The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston owns a third impression, which was originally in the collection of Solomon Telingator, a Soviet typographer and student of El Lissitzky.  Each of these posters are identical to the present example.
