The agrarian reform and peasant revolution were two of the most controversial problems in the Second Republic of Spain (c. 1931). Vincent Canet Cabellón’s poster is emblematic of the agricultural upheaval that occurred at the start of the Spanish Civil War (1936-1939). The message of this poster highlights the underproduction and mismanagement of Spanish agricultural properties, as well as the discontent of agricultural laborers and sharecroppers in rural districts.
