Soviet Silent Era Film Posters By The Sternberg Brothers

There is something so iconic about early Soviet art, specifically the Constructivist movement, that came to symbolize the early days of Communism. The Constructivists believed that a political movement should consist of both soldiers and artists, a rifle in one hand and a paintbrush in the other.

But seminal graphic designers Vladimir and Georgii Sternberg decided to go a different route when they began designing movie posters in the 1920s- they chose Dada as their major influence, and somehow still managed to create works which fit right in with the rest of their Constructivist contemporaries.

These posters and many more Soviet Silent Era movie posters are currently on display at the Gallery for Russian Art and Design in London
