City of Sun. Soviet art 1930s - 1950s

Omsk Regional Museum of Fine Arts named after M. Vrubel presents an exhibition "City of Sun. Soviet art of the 1930s - 1950s ".

The exposition includes about 50 brightest works of the 1930s - 1950s from the collection of the State Museum and Exhibition Center "ROSIZO" - paintings, sculptures, objects of decorative and applied art. Among the exhibits there are works by "official" painters: Vasily Efanov "I. V. Stalin and V. M. Molotov with children "(1947) and Alexander Gerasimov" Portrait of I. V. Stalin "(1939). Gerasimov could really be called Stalin's favorite artist: for a long time, the master created the image of a wise and great leader, warmly revered by his people. The exposition includes works by prominent sculptors Sara Lebedeva and Vera Adamchevskaya.

The Utopian City of the Sun is a model of a "bright communist future" that has been the goal of the USSR since its inception (in 1922). Soviet art of the 1930s - 1950s, with all the outward signs of realism, was just as utopian. The works, shown for the first time in Omsk, are a vivid document of the era, visually reflecting an important period of Russian history with its pathos of creation and enthusiasm, achievements and delusions.

Based on site materials OOMII them. M. A. Vrubel.
