    Roadwork - a sign of stability in the German occupied western areas of the Soviet Union.

    Roadwork - a sign of stability in the German occupied western areas of the Soviet Union. The virtues of reconstruction are heralded in this large poster.

    23 " x 33 7/8". Men and women are employed in road construction. Text reads: "Build Roads! Good roads are the guarantee of the prosperity of the country!"

    Excellent condition. Various tears and imperfections have been repaired on the reverse with acid-free archival paper tape. Presentable as it is, mounting on linen before framing would help preserve it for a few more decades.

    One of a series of posters meant to convey the message to Russians and Ukrainians that the German occupation was bringing the benefits of an organized life to Eastern Europe. Frankly, unless the viewer knew the German origin of this poster, he could be forgiven for thinking that it was actually Soviet-produced. (The only tip-off that this is not from a Soviet artist is the fact that the worker is missing the expression of transcendent bliss that all socialist workers were expected to have - at least in art!)
