Isaac Brodsky. Soviet David

The Berdyansk Art Museum hosts an exhibition of Isaac Brodsky "Soviet David". The exhibition features 30 works by the author, some of which are stored in the funds of the Odessa Art Museum. This project shows how an artist can become a key element of propaganda.

Isaac Brodsky is a Soviet artist whose creative activity is inextricably linked with the political and social life of the first third of the twentieth century. The painter is known as one of the main authors of the famous "Leniana" - a series of monumental works of various sizes dedicated to Vladimir Lenin. The author worked on creating the image of Lenin and Stalin, largely forming the then and current idea of the appearance and habits of leaders. It was he who became one of the myth-makers of the visual component of Soviet propaganda, for which he received the nickname "Soviet David."
