ANONYMOUS ARTIST. Come Out, Girls…, 1923

An amusing lubok-style poster, designed as an illustration to a propaganda ditty — a young peasant girl takes a passing interest in a member of a Social-Revolutionary party, but soon recognizes him as “a coward and a traitor,” gives her heart to a Communist, and proudly proclaims, “I am a free peasant, not some serf's woman.”
