Yunoshi i devushki! Postupaite v shkoly FZO i uchilishcha trudovykh rezervov! [Young Men and Women! Sign up for Factory-based Schools and Labor Pool Technical Schools!], a poster by V. Barkov [Vladimir Barkov (1908 - ?)] and V. Lisevich. Iskusstvo, Moscow, 1946, 60.5 x 86.5 cm.

The first post-war Five Year Plan set a goal of graduating 4.5 million students from factory-based and technical schools, thus relieving war-caused work shortages.

We found references to numerous posters produced by the artists jointly and individually, but have no personal information about them. Information about Barkov's name comes from the poster's description in the Belarusian National Library catalog.

Opening Price: $300

Estimate: $300-$450
