Children of the Soviet country

State Russian Museum presents the exhibition "Children of the land of the Soviets" that shows the history of a great country in the faces of children.

More than 200 works graphs, painters, sculptors, masters of decorative-applied art and numismatics samples, covering the period 1920-1980-ies show the life of a young Soviet citizens, carefully, from all sides.

The exposition is divided into theme halls and corners – "our Golden Child", "Young Leninists", "Children of different peoples", "Difficult childhood", "School years wonderful", "beautiful far".

A large part of the exhibition was propaganda exhibits, because it is so catchy, politicized, with slogans and appeals, we believe Soviet art. But on the other hand, the exposure positions of the Soviet childhood as something more ambitious than the mythology of the pioneers, the hardy boys and Pavlik Morozov. And looking at the list of authors, whose works are represented in the exhibition, among which such masters as K. Petrov-Vodkin, Pyotr Konchalovsky, A. Plastov, A. F. Pakhomov, E. E. Moiseenko, A. A. Deineka, V. M. Konashevich, V. M., Yakobson, you can be sure that the viewer will see these issues from all angles.

Purely conventionally, the exhibits can be divided into agitation and optimistic (posters on child health and education, carefree children on the background of beautiful surroundings) and documentary-tragic (homeless, children's homes, war, famine).

But in any case, the exposition will be interesting for the viewer, will help to make him travel to the past of the country, and for the older generation to once again plunge into childhood memories.
