    After Germany declared war on Russia in August 1914, the government established a publishing house, ‘The Contemporary Lubok’, which commissioned work from prominent artists, including Malevich, who drew six anti-German propaganda posters in the style of folkloric prints. Dimitri Moor, Burliuk and Lentulov also designed posters with the captions being written by Maiakovsky.
