Sowing Campaign in Kirghizia
V. L. Mokrozhitsky
A classic Socialist realist subject by Mokhrozhitsky, though on a smaller, more intimate scale than the vast heroic works with which he first made his name. This lively little picture might even persuade us that a peasant's life in a far-flung Soviet republic could occasionally be quite fun!
This painting was brought to the UK in the early 1990s when Russian/Soviet art was the subject of several exhibitions in London.
