Lenin in Art- A private collection of Socialist Realist Art

Interest in Socialist Realism art works from the Soviet Union has developed very rapidly these last several years, especially from the point of view of Western collectors and investors. It seems there's an insatiable demand for such art these days as the number of high quality paintings quickly diminishes, like snow melting in the sun. Within a few years, very few significant works will be available which is quite amazing given that prior to 2005, it was impossible to export paintings from the new Republics of the Soviet Union if the works were deemed to be more than 50 years old.

On the one hand, these works depict how a regime sought to control their own people. On the other, we see the artist trying to make a personal creative statement. History reminds us that Lenin failed to attain his dreams, but the art works themselves reveal that at least Lenin (meaning, his painters) had some good intentions.

Stalin sought to use art for political reasons. He wanted art to educate the people to learn the new principles of communism - to show the possibility for a better reality.
