Sprava Parizhskih Komunariv bezsmertna! [The Cause of the Paris Communars Is Eternal!], a Ukrainian-language poster by painter Gennady Titov (1914 -1970). Iskusstvo, Kiev, 1941, 63 x 85 cm.

The poster is signed in plate ``Titov 40,`` suggesting that artist designed it in 1940 to mark the 40th anniversary of the Paris Commune (1870-1871).

Gennady Titov studied art in Odessa , and later in the Kiev Art Institute, graduating in 1940. We have not seen other posters of this artist; it appears that after the war, he pursued a teaching career in arts.
