198 х 119,5 cm
Oil on canvas
The socialist realism of the 1970s was marked by a desire to bring an emotional, lyrical note to the interpretation of political leaders.
The artist places the main figure of the Soviet pantheon, the leader of the world proletariat, in the perspective of a bright autumn forest with a flaming leafy birch, in a casually put over the coat, the legendary Lenin cap, with a look directly at the viewer with the famous squint.
