A suffering and emaciated man is embraced by two pairs of tough-looking hands.

Designed as a propaganda poster during the Russian Civil War, this lithograph demonstrates the artist’s sensibility to the social conditions of the working class. The print medium serves as a useful tool for spreading pacifist and political messages.
