Original vintage art specialist AntikBar has put a fascinating collection of Russian avant-garde posters up for sale. It comprises a complete set of nearly 300 posters designed by the masters of Soviet Avant-Garde during the 1920s. Describing the set as “an exceptional investment opportunity into the growing market of vintage posters and Russian avant-garde design,” the collection includes stylized artwork by constructivist designers, such as Alexander Rodchenko, the Stenberg Brothers, Yakov Ruklevsky, Alexander Gan, Anton Lavinsky, Alexander Naumov, Nikolai Prusakov, Gustav Klutsis and others. Lovers of Soviet era art and design will be drooling at the prospect.

The majority of the collection comprises film posters, including a very rare eight sheet (2.2 x 2.75m) billboard designed by the Stenberg Brothers and Yakov Ruklevsky for the Sergey Eisenstein film October. Also represented in the collection are posters for Battleship Potemkin, One Sixth of the World by Dziga Vertov and a variety of silent Hollywood movies featuring the likes of Buster Keaton, Harold Lloyd, Douglas Fairbanks and Mary Pickford. The set is being sold complete.
