affiche, 1936, Ballester A., CNT AIT Comité national, Paysan travaille

Here is one of the posters of the most known ofr the CNT AIT. Graphically we find the usual codes of the anarchist’s posters: freedom, construction of a new society and work to smash the fascism. The drawing almost takes up all the room with this Mediterranean farmer (in the engraved complexion) who breaks his chains. A. Ballester uses - as of usal- the diagonal, to give of the movement towards the future.

On the other poster (see below) only the text (on the same place) exchange. Impossible to say what is the poster which was published in the first one...
