Red star over Russia: a visual history of the Soviet Union from 1917 to the death of Stalin : posters, photographs and graphics from the David King collection
The Russian Revolution produced some advances in the fields of art, photography and graphic design seen in the twentieth century. Through an array of material including posters, photographs, paintings, magazine covers, book jackets, advertisements, pamphlets and other rare ephemera, 'Red Star Over Russia' aims to capture events as they unfold, providing a visual history of the birth and eventual decline of the Soviet Union. Through a combination of illustration and clear, accessible texts, King traces the development of polemical imagery in Russia from the simple effectiveness of a handbill distributed on the morning of the October Revolution in 1917 to the sophistication of the photo-montages of Alexander Rodchenko and Gustav Klutsis.
