    Korolev and friends discussing Sputnik and I think a representation of Gary Powers falling to earth following his shoot down. Anyone?

    • shmalex says:

      nope.. it’s kurchatov (with beard) and the thing on the table has something to do with nuclear bomb not the sputnik

    • Mick says:

      That’s what it appears to be. A very strange thing, to be sure. Given that the plane was black, not white, and the fact that his face is shown (frightened) and his muscular build – it kind of humanizes him and de-humanizes him at the same time. Strange.

    And in the west we have cheap ads
    at least in this case there were some role models or perhaps some characters and personalities not to emulate

    • harfang says:

      Oh, don’t worry. Russian cities have cheap ads now too. Stuff like this is intriguing in that, often, there is true and earnest belief in some very lofty and useful values behind it. But it’s like the Hoover Dam or anything else built by the WPA or the CCC in the States: nothing is that pure anymore, and in this case most of the purity was a facade once Lenin was gone.

    There are some achievements in the paintings.However if the Soviet Union had a Capitalist system instead of a Communist system there would be more achievements.

    awesome drawing

    First, I thought it was some post-modern joke. Unfortunately, it seems the author means it. I wonder who paid for this kitsch.
    BTW, the “academic” painting became hopelessly obsolete with the Impressionists, i.e. almost 150 yrs ago.

    Damn comunists…

  12. Richard says:

    As with alot of things of the cold war, these imaginary life glimpes’s of either Russian or American life were highly propiganda’ized to fit the dirrection of either nation or to enspire patriotism. Here in the US. it would have been plausable to say that Russians were so barberic, they ate their children…….literally. Yes and many would believe it too. It just goes to show the insanity of mob mentality. By massing citizens into a zenophobic frenzy, a nation could then find much more support for their agenda. At least back in the cold war days there were some sembelance of patriotism and moral charicter, where-as todays citizens seem to be in moral freefall with ever worsening social decay and corruption.

    Where is it?

    Which station?

  14. Adolfo Camara says:

    Is this in Moscow?

  15. That’s what it appears to be. A very strange thing, to be sure. Given that the plane was black, not white, and the fact that his face is shown (frightened) and his muscular build – it kind of humanizes him and de-humanizes him at the same time. Strange…
    Nice paintings of accomplishments and glorious leaders.
