Film Posters of the Russian Avant-Garde

(No reviews yet)

At the intersection of the visual,  graphic, and cinematic arts, film posters are a unique and thrilling  record of a particular cultural Zeitgeist. This book brings together 250  posters from the pre-Stalin Soviet Union of the 1920s and 1930s to  explore the energy and invention of this period, before Soviet Realism  became the official art doctrine.

Drawn from the private  collection of connoisseur Susan Pack, the selection includes the work of  27 different artists. From bold figuration to architectural elements,  each artist displays a distinct style and aesthetic, as much as they  collectively eschew the glamour of Hollywood for more stark, striking,  even challenging images, often marked by unusual angles, dynamic  compositions, and startling close-ups.
