Méndez, Leopoldo: Jugoslav Guerrillas The Second Front in Europe


Size: 18×22


Méndez, Leopoldo Jugoslav Guerrillas The Second Front in Europe. One of the most astounding woodblocks produced during the war. Backed up by Chetnik troops and peasants, an enraged partisan is shown attacking a cringing Hitler, Mussolini and their Croat allies with a huge ax. Burning medieval churches, a gallows and a figure of the Grim Reaper add to a feeling of horror. Woodblock used to great effect depicting flames. The title looks as if i has been dragged through blood to add to the overall impression of carnage. Very scarce. 18×22 mint.
