About

Original vintage Soviet travel poster issued by the state travel company Intourist advertising the Shortest, cheapest and most comfortable route between Iran/Persia/and Western Europe via the USSR Shepetovka-Baku in 55 Hours by rail featuring a stunning image of a lady in a red dress leaning out of a train window with her hair and scarf blowing with the speed of the train in front of industrial buildings and oil rigs on the horizon, the stylised text below. Artwork the notable Soviet artist Nikolai Zhukov (1908-1973) and Avenir Chernomordik (1897-1991). These early Intourist posters were aimed at attracting foreign tourists and designed in the bourgeois Art Deco style to create a glamorous portrayal of the Soviet Union. Virtually unknown in the USSR, Intourist advertising posters became a calling card of Soviet Russia as they were displayed in tourist offices, embassies, airports, hotels, train carriages and ocean liner cabins all over the world. Bold, bright and highly artistic they were printed with the highest quality materials and aimed at presenting to foreign tourists the joys of travelling in the USSR, the first socialist country in the world. Very good condition, minor staining, backed on linen.
