From the publication The Playboy: A Portfolio of Art and Satire, no. 9.

This woodcut, which shares the “primitive” approach of other Expressionist pieces, appeared in the American modernist art periodical The Playboy. The artist’s anonymity may be explained by the Soviet government’s increasing hostility toward avant-garde art during the 1920s.
