According to the methodologist of the House of Artists Varvara Zarovnyaeva, during the Great Patriotic War, artists painted posters to strengthen people’s faith in victory. The posters revealed the true face of fascism, called for the fight against the enemy, asserted the unity of the front and rear in the name of victory. Graphic sheets reflected the strength of front-line soldiers: signalmen, tankmen, nurses and others.
A special place is occupied at the exhibition by works of Yakut artists, with poems by great Yakut writers – Amma Achchygyya and Kunnuk Urastyrap. They served as reinforcement, instilling confidence and faith in victory.
