Motherland is calling! - Soviet propaganda

Product Description:
"Motherland is calling!"

Soviet propaganda poster from 1941.

With the launch of Operation Barbarossa by the Germans in June 1941, the Soviet Union entered World War II. Supposedly, the story behind this poster is that the wife of the artist, Irakli Toidze, ran into his studio screaming "War!" upon hearing the news on the radio.

Irakli asked her to freeze her movement, and her posture is what is seen in the poster, though her great looks were allegedly toned down a lot for the poster. It was indeed published in the very early stages of the German attack and became iconic in Soviet imagery.

This poster is a reproduction of a carefully restored original and therefore of great quality, printed on the best paper available on the market.

This print is available in 2 different sizes. For other sizes please contact for an estimate.
