1939 Socialist Child Labor Poster by Rebel Arts Group, New York

About

RETIREMENT SALE!!! EVERYTHING MUST GO - CHECK OUT OUR OTHER ITEMS. Rebel Arts Group was formed in 1934 by a group of students from the Rand School for Social Science, an important institution supported by the Socialist Party, the Workmen’s Circle and various socialist-led unions. Rebel Arts emerged as the Socialist Party’s answer to the Communist's John Reed Club of New York. Led by writer and Socialist Party officer Samuel H. Friedman (1897–1990), Rebel Arts produced plays, music, and murals exploring the intersection of art and revolutionary ideology. Friedman understood the importance of the arts and culture as a means of promoting the primary objective of their political cause. Artists involved with the group were Harry Herzog, Fairfield Porter, and Alex Haberstroh. This example was found in the 1960s when the Union Poster Service building of New York was sold. A small number of the original posters were uncovered, created between 1936 and 1939. The image depicts a firm hand holding a sign in front of a factory. The image is an important glimpse into the early struggles of the workers in early industrialized America. The work is silk screened paint over a poster board, and retains the union Poster stamp, as well as an applied stamp on the reverse side. The poster is in overall good condition, with only minor edge wear.
