Description

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.
