We will fulfill the new Stalinist Five-Year Plan! (TASS Window #1449), 1946

Ladyagin, V. poster: We will fulfill the new Stalinist Five-Year Plan! (TASS Window #1449)

This is from a collection of extremely rare News Agency "window" posters from the Soviet Union. Posted daily in shop windows of Moscow after the German invasion started in June 1941, TASS posters were intended to rally support for the war, and later the post-war, effort.

Artists of these posters utilized a broad arsenal of visual strategies to both incite and inspire - from vicious satire, to potent slogans, to undiluted horror and hatred, to patriotic historical parallels.

The collection at International Poster Gallery features intricately hand stenciled TASS panels dating from March 1943 to late 1946 as the scales slowly tipped in the Soviets' favor, and beyond the armistice. Due to their rarity and historical value, the group of 45 panels will be sold as a collection.

This panel reads:

In the rubber industry, by 1950 we shall turn out enough synthetic rubber to produce three times as many tires and {illegible} times as much rubber-soled footwear as we did before the war.

Mindful of the country's requirements, rubber workers should turn out as much high-quality rubber as our economy and our automobiles need.
