Russian Revolution of 1917 and its consequences were often very dramatic, but for decades it offered artists unprecedented possibilities – propaganda art amongst them.


Applied arts and design, although their producers in 1920s-1930s Soviet Russia were often limited in expensive materials, gave unique opportunities for experiment. Not only was it commissioned by the state, but also was explored by artists as a new way of creation which actively communicated with the public, bringing the thrill of Revolution into mundane life.
