Windows on the War
During World War II, larger-than-life posters captured the Soviet Union’s fight against Nazi Germany in vibrant detail. Working from the TASS studio in Moscow, these artists and writers produced hundreds of colorful stencils for storefronts across the country. Windows on the War: Soviet TASS Posters at Home and Abroad, 1941–1945 is a monumental exhibition centered on these posters, which have not been seen in the United States since the end of the war. Become a member today and be among the first to see this striking presentation at a selection of member previews and lectures. Or see the exhibition when it opens to the public on July 31.
Wars and revolutions have been recorded in words and images since time immemorial, commemorated in architecture, sculpture, mosaics, frescoes, and tapestries. Opening July 31, Belligerent Encounters: Graphic Chronicles of War and Revolution, 1500–1945 serves as a prelude to the retrospective Windows on the War and includes European and American prints, posters, and drawings spanning almost 500 years of unrest and turmoil. Members get the first look with three days of exclusive member previews.
