Additional Details: First edition advertising poster by Alexander Calder for Amnesty International in 1977. Artists for Amnesty, a series of art posters created by 15 world renowned artists to focus on Amnesty International's Prisoners of Conscience Year 1977, was exhibited between February and March of 1977 in the Washington Place windows of New York University's Grey Art Gallery. The poster features a powerful image: a man holding a whip and a horse with two men who seem to be escaping. This dramatic scene encapsulates themes of oppression, escape, and the struggle for freedom, reflecting the core mission of Amnesty International. Calder's use of bold lines and vivid colors brings a dynamic energy to the composition, making the poster not only a striking piece of art but also a compelling statement on human rights.
