Sale 2459 Lot 67
DESIGNER UNKNOWN ODESSA. Circa 1935.
30x19 3/4 inches, 76 1/4x50 1/4 cm. Intourist, Moscow.
Condition B+: repaired tears and creases in margins, some affecting image; repaired punch holes in top image and lower margin; horizontal fold in upper image; faded. Mounted on paper.
An early Soviet Intourist poster combining a realistic landscape of the Odessa port and rail yards with very stylized typography. The Odessa Steps, which gained global notoriety after the famous scene in Sergei Eisenstein's movie, "Battleship Potemkin," were constructed between 1837 and 1841. Linking the famous seaport with the city itself, the steps are one of Odessa's most famous landmarks. This is the English version (the only change in versions of different languages is the initials of the country, here USSR). Not in Intourist.
Estimate $1,200 - 1,800
