VALOV, VASILI.
Krasnyi partizan [The Red Partisan]. OGIZ, 1931.
8vo. 12 pp. Illustrated by Pavel Mikhailovich Kondratev with color lithographs. Original color lithographed wrappers. Rebacked and soiled, library stamps removed.

When two "red" ex-guerrillas meet, one invites other to show him what a great New Life they created after beating all the enemies of the Revolution. Another of Filonov's students, P. M. Kondratev worked in the faux naif style of this school of illustration. His drawings for Vasili Valov's agit-prop story look like they could have been done by children themselves.
