Stunning design by the notable Soviet artist, Nikolai Zhukov (1908-1973), for this original vintage poster that was commissioned by Intourist, the Soviet state travel monopoly, in the 1930s. These 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. USSR Dance Festival, Moscow - Leningrad, June 10-20, 1936. Excellent condition, backed on board.
