Poster for the 1929 elections, which criticizes cardinal Jozef Van Roey for demonizing the socialists in favor of the christian-democratic party. 

Géo Dixel was an early-20th century Belgian illustrator and graphic artist. He was known for his propaganda posters for the Belgian Worker's Party (BWP in Flemish, POB in Walloon) in the 1920s and 1930s. Some of these make use of sequential illustrated narratives, mostly to contrast the miserable life of the common people with how much better they would be off if a socialist government stood up for their rights. They were lithographed both in Dutch and in French by the printer Vandezande.

Poster for the 1929 elections, explaining how the liberal banker and senator Maurice Despret and Prime Minister Henri Jaspar caused the Belgian franc to plummit, while the socialist politician Emile Vandervelde and Prime Minister Prosper Poullet stabilized the monetary unit.
