Small Soviet Socialist Realist Paintings and Drawings by well known Russian artists

This month ArtImport is proud to present a rare collection of small Soviet Socialist Realist paintings, drawings and studies, dating from the early 1950s. Spanning a range of different media, these pictures cover many aspects of Soviet life, as played out in such arenas as the mines, factories, fields and battlefields.

Molteninov’s painting “At the Start”, of skiers just before the race, Opanosenko’s “The Ice Skating Festival”, and “Soldiers on Leave” by Shulunov, show the softer, lighter side that can be found in Russian pictures of that time. Lagutin’s painting of female “Surgeons at the Military Hospital in St Petersburg” and Zachinyaiev’s “Saturday Bath House Day” express the originality and humour of Soviet painting.

The artists of this collection come from all over Russia: Tver, Irkutsk, Perm, Penza, Krasnoyarsk, Minsk, Crimea, St Petersburg, Moscow. Some are famous, like Podlyanski, whereas others are less known in the West. Some, like Davidenkova, as still painting in their late 70s and 80s; others are no longer with us.

One thing that unites them all is the spirit and power of their work, which never ceases to excite the viewer with all of its colourful variety.
Paintings purchased in monthly exhibitions receive a complimentary 10% discount.
