Да здравствует конституция страны социализма! [Long live the constitution of the Socialist nation!]
Typically Soviet poster illustrated by graphic artist Iuli Ganf, whose satirical work was published in magazines and newspapers such as Krokodil.
“He participated in the seventh exhibition of the group L’Araignée (The Spider) at the Galerie Devambe in Paris in 1925 and was included in the major exhibition in Moscow in 1927 marking the tenth anniversary of the Revolution” (Milner, J., A dictionary of Russian and Soviet artists 1420-1970, p. 157).
The quotes from the constitution read: The Union of Soviet Socialist Republics is a socialist government of labourers and peasants; All power in the USSR belongs to the labourers of town and countryside, who are represented by the Soviets of workers’ delegates.
