Description:

Typical Socialist Realist poster for the Ministry of Welfare and the National Council of the Labour Unions by Tibor Gönczi-Gebhardt. The poster represents a typical image about the new happy state.

Tibor Gönczi-Gebhardt's works are realistic, epic, and easy to understand, qualities that equally characterise his socialist realist designs. After 1949 he remained a central figure in the propaganda of the centralized power. In this period, the secret of his success was that he could produce posters in his own drawing style, combined with the expectations of socialist realism.
