RARE REVOLUTIONARY MARCHING SONG OF THE RUSSIAN AVANT GARDE. Mayakovsky's call for revolutionary action first appeared in the first number of the Futuristov gazeta of 1918. Lurye was a Russian avant-garde composer and at one time poet Anna Akhmatova's lover. He served as head of the music division of the Commissariat of Enlightenment or Narkompros under Anatoly Lunacharsky, but he eventually grew disillusioned with the Soviets and defected in 1921 during an official mission to Berlin. Miturich was an important Russian avant-garde artist who painted Lurye's portrait and collaborated with him on a selection of music for children, Royal v detskoi (The Children's Piano), 1920. Not in MoMA or Getty.
