Posters of the Spanish Civil War

Propaganda posters constitute one of the most poignant documents that remain from the Spanish Civil War. This online exhibit presents posters from the Republican side from the collection of the University of California. It includes images that deal with most of the themes that dominated the minds of contemporaries. Many of the posters were produced by some of the most important organizations and institutions active in the war, and they were designed by some of the leading artists of the era.
