BURLINGTON, VT.- Nearly twenty
years after the demise of the Soviet Union, the Fleming Museum brings to Vermont
an extraordinary collection of Soviet graphic arts.
The exhibition
Views and Reviews: Soviet Political Posters and Cartoons opens at the Fleming
Museum and presents a stunning array of images spanning more than six decades
from the time of the Russian Civil War (1918-1921) – during which period the
Bolsheviks and their western-backed opponents struggled for control of the new
state – to the late Soviet period.
