Beat the Whites With the Red Wedge (1919), lithograph by Lazar Markovich Lissitzky (also known as El Lissitzky). 
Russian avant-garde defines the influential wave of modern art that flourished in the Russian Empire and the Soviet Union between 1890 and 1930. Beat the Whites With the Red Wedge exemplifies of the art movement related to Russian avant-garde, suprematism, which focused on basic geometric forms (circles, squares, lines, …) painted in a limited number of colors. 
Suprematism was founded around 1913, by Kazimir Malevich, and announced in his 1915 exhibition in St. Petersburg. El Lissitzky was an influential figure of this movement, designing  a number of installations, displays, and propoganda works for the Soviet Union. He was an artist, designer, photographer, typographer, and architect, and experimented with stylistic devices that would dominate 20-th century graphic design. His work was highly influential on the Bauhaus and constructivist movements.
