the placards of the time of the civil war in Russia and Ukraine
which gained worldwide fame as prominent works of art, there are
several not-singed ones which were printed in Kyiv in 1920. These
placards, Join the Red Cavalry
and Mount, Worker and
Peasant! were exhibited, in particular, at such grandiose
exhibitions as Paris-Moscow and
Moscow-Paris as anonymous ones. Working in the archives, I found the
name of the painter – Boris Sylkin. I also managed to identify the
names of the authors of some other placard masterpieces –
A.Marenkov – who worked in
