PIECK, Henri C.
10 Dagen Die De Wereld Deden Wankelen.
A rare lithograph of Pieck’s dramatic illustration for Ten Days that Shook the World (October in English), a silent film commissioned by the Soviet government to commemorate the 10-year anniversary of the October Revolution. Made by the director of Battleship Potemkin (1925), Sergei Eisenstein, the film utilized the concept of intellectual montage in order to juxtapose unrelated images in order to highlight the jingoistic patriotism promoted in the USSR during the period. The film was not commercially successful, and the government did not appreciate the artistic licence taken by Eisenstein with regards to the historical significance of the event depicted. However, Eisenstein’s groundbreaking use of montage and his subversion of the film’s original propagandistic purpose were regarded as an artistic triumph.
