Name of creator
The set of posters of the Russian Revolution were photographed at the Lenin Library in Moscow in 1966 by Italian photographer Caio Garruba and reproduced by him for publication in the West. The originals were created between the years 1917 and 1929, beginning with the October Revolution and spanning a 12 year period of unrest, counterrevolution, famine, foreign military intervention, and economic turmoil. Many were designed by renowned Russian artists, such as Moor, Apsit, Lisitski, Ivanov, and Mayakovski (information taken from the booklet which accompanies the posters).
This item was in the custody of Professor Christine Johanson before it was donated to Trent University Archives in 2003.
