Sovet Political Poster Reds' wedge is the Whites' death. Vitebsk. PROPAGANDA collectible 1920s

E. Lisitskii (1890-1941)
Reds' wedge is the Whites' death. Vrtebsk., 1920s

Beat the Whites with the red wedge - 1920

This famous piece by El Lissitzky shows the influence of the new avant garde modernist art movements on early Soviet propaganda. There is in fact a clear political message behind this design. When the revolution took place in Russia in 1917, it did not mean that the Soviet Union with its many components was immediatly formed. A civil war erupted between the communists, the reds, and the royalists supporting the old regime, the whites. With that in mind, this becomes a stylized battle plan for the communist victory, rather than just some abstract geometric design.
