Original 1932 Russian Constructivist Typographic Theatre Poster by Lupach

About

This original constructivist poster designed by the Russian artist F. Lupach in 1932 announces the opening of the state dramatic theatre in Pyatigorsk. Though little is known about Lupach, his use of strong, stylized typography and geometric layout confirm his place among the Avant Garde. The theatre’s inaugural repertoire includes Griboyedov’s classic “Woe from Wit” and Gogol’s “The Government Inspector” as well as new, innovative productions of “Fear” by Afinogenov and “Street of Joy” by Zarkhi. The theatre’s offerings added to Pyatigorsk’s already lively nightlife and restaurant scene. This popular Caucasus resort destination is best known for its natural mineral springs and health spas. The unusual color palate, horizontal format and historical context combine to make this poster a wonderfully unique find.
